From my Sonoma Rose Pin
To my Sonoma Rose book
autographed by Jennifer Chiaverini of The Elm Creek book series
of which I have all so far (I think)
Plus Sylvia's Bridal Sampler
I was reading at Fiona's Blog BubzRugz that she had started Sylvia's Bridal Sampler Quilt and thought 'I think I've got that book too'
so ferreted around late one night, found it and got all excited to use my collection of
Civil War and Reproduction Fabrics
Within a few days I had made up Chimneys & Cornerstones using mainly the Fabric Collections for a Cause - Hope, and Love along with the bottom centrepiece which (I think) is Mountain Creek Quilt Museum 1850 for Blue Hill Fabrics
I'm also lucky to have these two fabrics, Elm Creek Quilts - Gerda's Collection
by Jennifer Chiaverini for Red Rooster Fabrics
These were bought a few years ago in Numeralla whereby a lady was selling her Mother's Collection of fabrics which filled a 2 or 3 bedroom house!!!
Maybe this was all meant to be
But I had no idea it would be now
6 and a half weeks before my Paris/Latvia trip
Phew........talk about a distraction!!!!!!!
Never mind, my plan is 1 block a week and at this rate it will take me 2 years and 8 months but I reckon it will be closer to 3............
So let the sewing begin
To see updates of the other gals' blocks visit Fiona
Happy Sewing and in my case add Happy Packing and Getting Ready for my Trip
