No Time to Write, But Here's Another Bad Quilt Picture
I'm super-busy working on a revision, so I don't have much time to write this week. But I did want to post a picture of what I've been working on when I'm not writing. These are 15" blocks from a book called Facts and Fabrications: Unraveling the History of Quilts and Slavery by Barbara Brackman. I decided last weekend to try making one block from the book, just to see if I could follow directions. I made the Charm block, which is the one on the lower lefthand corner. It didn't take any time at all, so I decided to try the block right above it. And after that ...
Well, you get the picture. So this weekend I hope to add sashing and a border and a back. I may even try to quilt it on my machine. Fun!
Okay, back to the mines. More soon, I hope.
