I just want to say how excited I am about the Jubilee Quilt Project and want to thank Regan and Lori for their encouragement in forming an on-line group.
When I first posted my Jubilee Quilt idea on my blog, FunWithBarb, I had no idea that so many quilters would be interested in making themselves a special quilt. I'm thrilled that so many have joined this blog.
Let me take this opportunity to say there is no deadline for joining, and there are no quilt rules, save one: It must be a quilt made by you and for you.
You can see my first Jubilee post by by clicking here.
Here is the first block which I started late December.
Tell me if this sounds familiar:
You want to start a new project.
You know you don't have enough background.
You are too anxious and start anyway.
You soon worry and possibly regret it.
You reassure yourself all will be well.....
That's what happened with my muslin background. I have been side-lined waiting to resolve it. I bought a bolt, washed and pressed and cut it and decided; nope - not right! I have found that Moda natural muslin is the closes to what I started with (which is unknown, naturally). Thimbleanna is sending me a 90" wide bolt soon - hooray!
So, I prepped, prepped, prepped. I never work this way, but here is what I have cut and ready to go.
This gives me an idea of where I'm really going with this.
My friends, Pauline and Susan (non bloggers) are making the museum princess quilts in their own styles and I'll post photos of them next week.
Have a Fun Weekend!
