I'm posting for Karen today. She now has the first 3 rows done. We both are doing them like the original quilt and using Civil War era reproductions fabrics. I'm still busy working on the Roseville Album and someday will get back with this quilt. She already has 1 block done for the next row and probably close to having the second block done. Will post when the next row is done. We have given ourselves a deadline of May 18, 2011 to have our quilts done, don't know if we will make it but should be close to it. A deadline makes you work longer, little faster and hopefully have a finished quilt...time will tell !


  1. This is magnificent! What a treasure it will be for generations. I'm in awe.

  2. What gorgeous blocks!! Karen is making great progress. I love to see all her blocks together.

  3. Just beautiful, I love the colours. Everyone's interpretation is different, and seeing these makes me long for winter when I get back into stitching mine.

  4. Well done to Karen, what great progress, I love to see them all coming together. Yes, one day I'll get back to mine too....

  5. Yeah Karen (and Julee for posting)! This is gorgeous! The repro fabrics look great on this background and they all look fabulous together. Doesn't it make all the work worth it when you start building them together?!? Deadlines are good...helped me to finish my bride last spring. You both will get there!

    In stitches,
    Teresa :o)

  6. Wel done Karen, isn't it great working with a friend on a project together. Keeps you focussed and gives you another topic to share. As if you don't have enough to talk about already, with friends you're never out of things to talk about. But it's great fun to share a common interest, like...quilting, fabric, CWBQ! Yeah, keep up the good work.

  7. Karen, What beautiful work you do! Gorgeous colors/fabrics used as well. Can't wait to see the finished quilt in May, but please keep the updates coming until then!

  8. Wow, what a beautiful quilt!!! I can't believe how fast you ladies put together your quilts. What background fabric did Karen use? It really makes the colors in the blocks stand out.

  9. I absolutely love your colors...the peacocks are just wonderful...I can't wait until I get to those blocks..
    just wonderful
