Design Wall Monday
Civil War Diary Quilt, set as pictured in the Farmers Wife book.
I never follow a pattern precisely :)
I have a completed Civil War Diary Quilt top to show. Well, I thought so. It needs to be squared up. After multiple pictures and show and tells, one of my friends pointed out something. "Is this your Amish mistake in your quilt?", she asked. (you know that purposeful mistake to keep you humble, not prideful.)
"ummm, nope, why?" I asked. (because believe me, there are plenty of unintentional mistake in this thing, like blocks not lining up, squares with misplaced colors, etc.)
"Weeeeellll, you missed a sashing bar," she states.
I replied, "I AM SO HAPPY YOU POINTED THAT OUT BEFORE I STARTED TO QUILT IT!"
See that lower left corner? NO sashing bar , easy fix
So I need to add a sashing bar AND square it up. But it is photo worthy. :) I am thrilled.
Civil War Diary Quilt
What am I working on currently? I am in the process of quilting my tops that are stacking up. I have a lil twister tool to use for a quilt. I have several patterns I am working on. Plenty to do. But that day job still gets in the way of my quilting life, :)
