Welcome 2019

Yankee Diary 

My Yankee Diary, Barbara Brackman's BOM for 2017, is finished. My intention was to hand quilt this project, but I really did not get very far with that and chose to machine quilt it to get it done in 2018. I'm happy with the result-the quilt is light and luscious with texture and did I mention Finished? 

I'd like to go back and read the Yankee Diary blog entries to remind me of the symbolism of the blocks. Yankee Diary was based on the diary of a young woman, Caroline Cowles Richards -"Carrie",  from upstate New York during the Civil War. Her diary was published and a digital version can be seen here

This small quilt is my third UFO completed for my Tacoma quilt group challenge. Three down, seven to go!
