Home on the Plains

During my wonderful weekend at the Quilt Study Center, I had the opportunity to talk with Kathy Moore.  Kathy didn't tell me that she had coauthored a book - I found that out later when I bought this signed copy.  Those of you who have purchased Kansas City Star books in the past will know how beautifully presented they are, and this book is one of the best.
I have been collecting indigo fabrics for a while, and until now did not come across a quilt I wanted to make with them.  Our guild retreat is coming up at the end of the month, and I had promised myself a new project - last year I took older things to work on, and somehow it felt like doing homework - so this year, new projects only for me !!!
So here is Kathy's book and the fabrics I have chosen from my indigos - this morning I am cutting it so it will be ready for retreat !  I am planning to make twelve blocks, and am using a white Kona cotton for the background.

Wow what a great blog, my friend sent me the link. As well as all the regular sort of Repro quiltmaking I love Provencal fabrics/quilts. I will bookmark you and drop by often to see what you're up to.

Hi Margaret,
Thanks for your kind words, I usually post about the things I love - boutis, boutis, boutis ! first and then applique and repro quilts.
