even with only 1 good eye, i can fondle fabric! the big project for the upcoming retreat is the civil war diary quilt. i think i have 3 of the 121 blocks done...that's it. so, plenty more to do. i've printed the foundations, packed them up along with the book and CD. next task was to choose the fabrics i wanted to take for this task. sure, i could have bought more but i really didn't need to. so, i've narrowed it down to these 2 totes of repro fabrics; the one on the right is all jo morton fabrics. this should be enough and will hopefully make a serious dent in both the stash AND the blocks needed to complete this quilt. it's a big one, unusual for me, but i am, of course (no surprise) late coming to the civil war diary quilt party. ***** and welcome back to the quilty part of this blog. i've more eye appointments tomorrow but (keeping fingers crossed) so far so good.
