    Kathy - your country bride quilt is really beautiful! I bet it raised a lot of money.

    Kathy, I love your quilt...it is a real beauty! Hopefully you were able to build at least the nave with what you raised from the quilt!

    I'm sure there are many more who have NOT started than ones who have. I had to get a little head start because I'm so darn slow AND I just happened to have finished up another large project..so I had time to squeeze in hand sewing time.

    As one who suffers from a little ADD, I am often frustrated with little things like patterns. These small pieces for this AOTH quilt (7" size) are a challenge even on a good day. Yesterday, I had one of those AH HA moments and realized one reason I had been having such problems with my pieces not fitting correctly . Most of them were backward.

    I turned my pattern over on my light box to trace from the backside! Dumb,dumb,dumb.......

    Roxanne you are not dumb, some of the patterns are mirrored and some are not. The centre of the flower in block 27 is mirrored. All of the Scrolls are mirrored. so for those of you have not yet reached this point, the secret is to turn them over and trace them.

The first pic was taken with the quilt being held over the balcony railing in our church, St. Marcus Lutheran Church, Milwaukee. The 2nd one is in our guest bedroom at our house in Milwaukee before we moved to New Mexico.
    Incredible quilt, Kathy! Wish I could see it close up -- looks like you did beautiful work.

    Beautiful quilt Kathy, thanks for sharing. I must have missed the last page so had to go look for it.

    I am a bit mystified about reversing the patterns etc.?

    I have photocopied the page of each design. I put that, face up on my light box, and trace through the background fabric, so my tracing is exactly how the design looks in the book. I must be missing something here.
