Ready to take along


I wasn't idle these past few weeks. The borders are ready for hand sewing. I'm planning to take it along on our next trip in March. I will also be visiting Washington DC while Jack is on business. I'll have the opportunity to visit the DAR Museum and see the Mary Mannakee quilt. Its my hope to duplicate the way it was hand quilted.

You do such gorgeous work - and seem to do it so quickly. That is going to be an heirloom. What fun to get to see the actual quilt you are duplicating. Nothing like seeing it in person. Carol

What a bonus to see the original quilt. I imagine you'll have your sketch pad with you to sketch the quilting.
