I have 11 blocks drafted and Doreen has provided the names of all the blocks.
I originally decided to post the patterns one block at a time starting in Jan.
However, Homestead Hearth is offering a BOM program starting in Feb. based on the book, A Mother's Gift.
I am seriously contemplating my next move.
A big thank you to Lisa for bringing it to my attention.
My only saving grace is that I decided to draft them 5" and they were actually 4 1/2" finished in the original quilt. Homestead Hearth's program will give you a historically accurate reproduction of the quilt.
Mine will not.
I don't even know if I can draft more than 3/4 of the blocks.
Check their program out. From what I can tell, it is similar to the Farmer's Wife Quilt in that you use a CD with templates or foundation paper piecing patterns, which will make the complex blocks easier than my method.
I felt you needed to know the facts up front.
I learned to hook yesterday afternoon--that is rug hook!
My new quilty friend, Debbie, is teaching me.
Just what I need! Another hobby/craft.
How many unfinished rugs can a person acquire in a lifetime?
Stay tuned for the answer.
But, really. There is one in my new Kim Diehl book I want to do, so I need to practice on this darling quilt sampler rug that Debbie gifted to me. How apropos for me--a sampler fanatic!

Puts my 'glitzy' decor to shame!
