Away From Home: Quilts Inspired by the Lowell Factory Girls
So now that I have my master patterns--and my fabric which arrived fresh from the factory on Friday--I'm ready to begin. There's still a lot of prep work for the applique since I like to use the freezer paper and starch method. And, it's almost inevitable that I will make changes as I work through the quilt construction. You know how it goes, sometimes a fabric you thought would look perfect, doesn't. Or you want to add something. Or subtract something.
In any case, I am so, so excited to get this project going.
Oh . . . and I've been working on another quilt for the book. It's going to be one of the additional projects. Here's a little peek at some of the stars that are going into this pink and brown beauty made from the Cocheco III collection by Judie Rothermel for Marcus Fabrics.
