Modern quilter........ME??

If you have been a reader of my blog for very long, you know that I am a traditional quilter. I love Civil War fabrics, and mostly traditional patterns.

So when Pat Bravo asked for help in making Project Linus quilts, I raised my hand and she sent me a bundle of fabric scraps.

And let me tell you, they are beautiful! I just have never put together a Kaffe type color scheme before. But I am progressing.......... slowly :-)

I hope to have these finished by the end of the week. Sometimes it's good to stretch our creative brain ;-)

You just never know, right? Until we try something new, how will we know if we love it or not? I continue to be surprised at the things I find I love!
Happy Thanksgiving,

I"m the opposite though I have yet to be presented with traditional fabrics, I hope that I would be surprisingly pleased to work with them... :) Yay for you!

It is good to stretch and grow.... I started quilting loving all the bright and colorful prints.... Kaffe Fassett, Amy Butler, et al were major draws. Interestingly, I'm moving into the 1800s reproduction prints, which are challenging me big time... but it's fun.

Love your Linus quilt.... ya done good!
