Primitive Gatherings, I'm trying to reorganize my threads. They were in several locations so I'm trying to get them all together. This little plastic container just might do the trick.
Happy Stitching when you can!

Several months ago I spotted the book, History Repeated, by Betsy Chutchian and Carol Staehle, in a quilt shop. I quickly purchased it and my favorite quilt in the book was Blindman's Fancy - also a rather difficult one. I think the picture on the cover of the book at the bottom left is what drew me in. After sorting through my fabrics for a couple of weeks I decided to begin cutting and see if I could make this block the proper size.
I was slightly scared off from the quilt because there are some pieces cut and sized to 1/16" of an inch. I mean, my rulers don't even have those marks on them. Well, I finally decided the Omnigrid little cross lines might be that and it seemed to work. I used a Liberty of London print in the center to African fabric to Piece O'Cake plus a little in between. I am mostly wanting to use my stash yet still get the look from the book.
Another project I just began was the Farmer's Wife Sampler Quilt. Again, on my list of 'want to make' quilts.
