Here is the cover!
And here is the quilt!
The quilt is 69x83, quite close to the original. The blocks are square as the original blocks are (blocks are 14" square, borders are 6-1/2" wide).
Dear Readers, did I make this quilt all by my lonesome? Nay, I did not. I would have had a coronary in the attempt. Eleven friends made blocks and borders (thirteen blocks and two borders); that leaves seven blocks and two borders by me :-). If I counted right; I'm too excited to think straight :-).
You may notice that Block Two, instead of being the (certainly delightful) floral display that is in the original, is the Bride's Suitor (since men are just as delightful if not more so than floral displays).
I loved designing these blocks and borders and also loved working on the book. I hope that you will also enjoy the book and the quilt patterns.
Wow, what a New Year's Eve 2011 turned out to be! Happy New Year to us all and may we get lots of quilting done in 2012.
