Well it appears that we have an official ‘Winter Solstice’ Quilt-A-Long happening and it’s starting this month!! There are a lot of very keen quilters already starting their blocks…I better get busy!
This is the quilt that we are making…
We are starting with the two most difficult blocks…the large barn and the small barn (the big house) this month and will work our way through the pattern.
Speaking of which, the pattern can be found in this great book…it’s an oldie but a goodie… “Life in the Country” by Country Threads. If you want to join in then you are more than welcome!
We have fifteen very talented quilters in our Sew A-Long~
