In 2010, a group of ladies who had started blogging on the American Patchwork & Quilting Magazine's web site (allpeoplequilt.com), decided to join together for a block swap. We ended up with 13 participants and each month we sent 2 blocks to 2 different people. Finally, I have gotten my blocks put together. I don't know if I will put a border on it or not, but at least the top is done! Am I the last one to get mine put together? It was a lot of fun to participate in and most of us are still following each others' blogs.
DH & I went to the Texas Civil War Museum in Fort Worth this week. I just took a few pictures.
|Log Cabin quilt - it had embroidery stitches along each seam - made in the 1840s.|
|Some civil war era clothes.|
|What a pretty blouse!|
|Look at the antique sewing machine.|
That was a horrible time in our nation's history. It's hard to even imagine what the people went through during that time. I participated in the civil war block series last year and now I have another quilt top to put together! I hope to get to that before the end of the year.
Thanks for visiting! And thanks for so many comments - I'm sorry that I haven't replied to all of them.
