another project I can't wait to start

My friend was talking about making a new quilt for her husband to take back to Pennsylvania in the summer when he goes back to participate in the 150th Gettysburg reenactment.  
I thought it was a great idea.
I was looking through an old quilting magazine I had the other night while putting Kenna to bed.  This is Fons and Porter's Love of Quilting issue from Jan/Feb 2004.
I saw this one, and thought it was perfect.  They made it using plaid flannels, but wouldn't it look fantastic in civil war reproduction cottons?  I think it would be stunning.  I think I need to make this pattern.  For me!  Even though I am not going to Gettysburg!  
It will be a good way for me to feel involved in such a monumental event, 
and a great excuse to start another project.
It measures 59" by 86" or something like that - the perfect civil war cot quilt size.


On another note, Kenna went to the doctor.
She is a little over 7 months old, 18 1/2 pounds, 27 inches long, and in about the 
73%tile on the growth charts.  
I thought with those sweet fat thighs of hers, she would be higher, but she is great.
She is the sweetest, most mellow baby and is crawling all over the place!

Sad to say, my cat still out weighs her.
