it's only a day later!

this post is a matter of principle...keeping my promise to me...I *AM* posting....lol

I spent a lovely 3 hours with the Waterford (Va) Quilt group working on "Dear Jane" squares...there were lively discussions about applique vs reverse applique... and the cardinal sins against a member who epitomizes politically correct hand quilting circa 1863.

I must say that Dear Jane has given me a totally new view of history...even being new to quilting...whilst I hand piece squares...I really *do* imagine a woman working by lantern light and using leftover fabrics from old dresses...
Even though I am using modern techniques and fabrics...the history has not escaped me...
