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!
