We get our COVID tests today, ahead of flying to the U.S. on Saturday. We are in full prep mode and our apartment looks like a cyclone hit it.
I'm trying to decide what handwork to bring on our trip. I'm paralyzed by indecision. I've only had 11 months to figure this out, lol. I will be gone a month, so this matters! I know my fellow quilters will understand!
I may bring appliqué - I already have some blocks traced and "kitted out" for back-basting.
These blocks are from the Ladies' Aid New York Sampler - offered by Barbara Brackman on her Civil War Quilts blog. I purchased the complete set on her Etsy site so that I could plan a little better.
The latest block (this charming horsey) is offered here.
Big 15" blocks.
I am going for:
- faded out, "taupey"
- soft, subtle
- sentimental and flowery
- plenty of blue
