Quilt Journaling

I've got an idea that I might start a new project....this can get me into trouble, but it might be worth it. Quilts have played a roll in US history. I'm thinking of beginning my own quilting journal of historical blocks and keeping them in a notebook....then we will see what happens with all these quilt blocks...ugh...there might be a lot of them. I want to begin when we declared our independence from Britian and take it from there. I don't know how it is going to happen, don't know the layout....but I'm going to take my time and enjoy the journey.
in the words of Abby Galey..."just saying"....I will post pictures as the blocks come together.....later everyone....


  1. Are you drawing blocks, at this time, or quilting them? I'm liking the idea.. just not understanding it yet.. what size block are you thinking of doing?

  2. hahaha...I need to clarify, huh?....My plan is to first do some research, document the block with written work then make the block. So I will be drafting the block then I will put it to fabric. How is that? lol....Block size? I don't know yet. Probably around 6" finished so that would be 6 1/2" unfinished. I want to protect everything so I will be sliding my work into protective sleeves in my binder....this will be an on going project....
