Cathi of Shakerwood Quilts http://shakerwoodquilts.blogspot.com/ is our host today for the Christmas QAL. She's just posted a picture of some yummy cookies which are making me hungry since I haven't had breadfast yet. Time to get going.
I'm almost ready. This is a pic of the dining room table on which sit two quilts; Festive Mystery is on top with the prairie points laid out around it and the Quilt of Valor is beneath it sandwiched but not basted.
I'm hoping for real progress of either of these quilts today.
I completed the eleventh block in the Treasure Chest QAL and it is called Ozark Trail.
I am getting very interested in the history of quilting, partly because of a conversation I had this week with a history buff and partly due to an excellent article I read this morning in AQS's American Quilter magazine which was about the quilts that were made and the women's role during the Civil War. So when I make a quilt block called Ozark Trail I get very intrigued and want to know more about it. Anyone have any good sources I can refer to to learn more?
