Trip Around the CW - started with a packet of Civil War
reproduction fabrics, done in a trip around the world style
When I first saw the Dear Jane book by Brenda Papadakis I thought that it was way too much work, and
I didn't have time for it. A friend thought Jane was nuts, and I agreed. Several years later I found out that
Electric Quilt had made a CD with the patterns. I had recently bought some Civil War reproduction fabrics and was looking
for a project to use them. Not having enough for this quilt I searched out more on the Internet, bought a bolt of background
fabric and went to work.
The blocks were made between July 2003 and May 2004, triangles and kites completed by September 2004. Center
assembled May/June 2004, but the triangles weren't added until July 2005.
I am currently quilting... and will be for a while.
