Last night I went to sit and sew at the church and we are starting to cut out our quilt.  Well kinda!  I bought my book a few months ago and I have torn the house apart twice looking for it.  Well yesterday before sit and sew I figured I would never find it.  So I ordered a new one.  At sit and sew Justine let me look at hers for what I needed.  (thank you 🙂 )  Well I said as soon as the other book gets here I will find the first one and guess what?  It did not take that long I found it last night!!!!!!!  Oh well.   So now we have to get things cut out because we will start sewing in October. 

I am using Moda, Civil War Crossings by Barbara Brackman.  It is BEAUTIFUL.  I bought the large fat quarter bundle and am going to get some coordinates to do the sashing, border, binding and backing.  I have never done a quilt with civil war materials.  I usually go for the brighter ones.  But I think I am really going to like this one.   I am making the 12″ blocks, 16 of them and the last one tells a story about the quilt.  I can’t wait to get started sewing.  I think I better have the HQ Sixteen up and running by then!!!!  I will want to quilt this one right away.  Then maybe I will quilt a few of the other ones I have ready to go.  (Maybe lol)
