I know…I’ve been hearing from so many people as to why I’ve grown silent. Well, sometimes work (as in that thing that I need to remind myself actually pays my bills) takes precedence over all other things…including talking to all you lovely folks.
So, just so that people will know that I didn’t drop off the face of the earth, I’m going to post this little update on the English Basket Quilt I wrote about a couple of months ago. It seems that the story of this wonderful quilt continues.
Corliss from Threadbear Patchwork and Quilting in Australia has given me permission to post the above picture of her rendition (and pattern available to all of us) of the fabulous antique. Corliss had in progress pictures on her website and included in her pattern…but I had not seen it entirely done. Bravo….is all I can say.
If you want to check out Corliss’ website, hop over to http://www.threadbear.com.au/ and take a look. You’ll be happy you did. Included in the pattern section of her website are many of the wonderful quilts that Di Ford has designed, along with Corliss’ Civil War Brides Quilt pattern that has captured the imagination of many an appliquist.
Give me a little more time and I’ll certainly have some new stuff!
P.S. And a special thanks to Pam who bought me the Basket Quilt pattern for my birthday. Yippee…more to add to my retirement plans.
