Very exciting! All my supplies are organized and ready to go. I've decided not to use a sewing machine. Each piece will be cut out individually and hand sewn. I will work only by candle light. Hmmm.....maybe not by candle light. Each week, I will post one finished block, maybe more. With limited time and other quilting to do, I don't want to be stitching under pressure.
As for fabric theme. Well, I have decided to use reproduction fabric for the Dear Jane blocks and a variety of fabrics for the Quilted Diamonds. I reread my Dear Jane and Quilted Diamond books in August and also watch Linda Franz's instructional DVD. I'm now ready to get started!
Until next week.....happy quilting!
