well, you girls had some interesting guesses. and i’m amazed at how easily some of you are willing to jump off of this cliff with me! talk about courage. we’ll see how courageous you are in a couple of minutes. 😉
no, my “home” quilt is not the quilt made by barbara snyder, although i do plan on doing a couple of hers someday. the nearly insane quilt is not the quilt i’m talking about, but i’m sure i’ll be close to insane when i’m done with this beauty.
so, what will these fabrics become…a long, long time from now?
a really long, long time from now. i’m talking decades, folks.
okay. grab your needles! you’re with me on this, right?
wait….where is everyone going?
is this not an awesome, unbelievable work of art? i adore susan mccord’s quilts. if i lived back in the 1800’s, i’d want susan mccord to be my neighbor. we could garden together, can together, quilt together. generally, we would be BFF’s. who do i want for my other neighbor? why, someone like wyatt earp, naturally. of course, he’d have to be cloned to look like sam elliott.
so, there you have it. i’m officially declaring my “home” quilt as a remake of susan mccord’s vine quilt. i probably won’t get a chance to start on it until after the new year, but start on it i will. i will not be strip piecing it as fons & porter suggest. nope. i’m doin’ it the old-fashioned way, just like susan did it. anyone brave enough to walk down the road with me? we could start our own “dear susan” group-just think of the possibilities! 😉
