Today's weather forecast is for snow, snow, snow. What better way to spend the day than piecing! Following a breadcrumb trail from Barbara Brackman's 'Civil War Quilts'blogthis morning, I found this sweetdollquilt(circa 1895) in the North Carolina Museum of History quilt collection.
Most of last year I exercised constraint on starting new projects, but lately I've done an 'about face'. Today I'm focusing on recreating this simple, yet graphic, doll quilt. The original computes to 2" squares (23.6" x 23.8"), but I'm leaning toward 1 3/4" sq (21" sq finished) or 1 1/2" sq (18" sq finished) - whichever scrap strip pile is larger.
Barring an electrical outage, I'll post later today/tomorrow with progress - hopefully, a completed top!
