I am very happy and excited when I found this blog. I totally fell in love with the Civil War Bride Quilt the first time I saw it in this blog and soon decided I also would like to make one for my son, especially after reading all the interesting posts. I am reading the blog backward from the eldest post right now, just entered 2011, and it was still interesting. I got the pattern yesterday, and purchased the background fabric one week ago. I think I will stick to the basic white cottom fabric, as I am not an experienced in appliqueing or quilting, so I will just choose the easiest solution.
A bit about myself. I am Lucia from Norway, originally from China. I have a son soon turning 2 years old, and I live with my husband in a town called Eidsvoll, close to the airport in Oslo. I have made one quilt only, and that took me two years :=P. I am determinted to not to spend two years on the Civil War Bride :=)
