New blogs to explore and enjoy!!

Who doesn't love a new blog!
Especially when they involve an antique quilt!!

l want to share these 2 blogs with you.

First up. Sharon's Chester Criswell Quilt Blog.
l first came across Sharon when she joined an online group l belong to.

 She shared a photo of her quilt and discussed reproducing it.
l am super excited that is finally happening.

Here is a photo of Sharon's Chester Criswell Quilt, an 1852 Album Quilt.
and if you hop on over to her blog, you can read more and
find info about the quilt.
Sharon has produced the first block, which will be free, then to follow
 are 35 more blocks, with lots of info on each signature.

And even more EXCITING!! We have collected a group of
 like minded ladies together,
 and we will be enjoying the company of this quilt in the near future.
Can't Wait!!

Next blog l want to share with you is Lisa and Lou's.
l have known Lisa for many years and
 l am excited they have joined the blogging world.

Their latest quilt, The Unknown Quilt is delightful.
 Its centre will be recognised by many.
Its inspired by a framed quilt l saw in the American Folk Art Museum last year.
 The general layout and mix of hexagons and circles is based
 on an Antique English Coverlet in the collection of Janet O'Dell.

  2. I am so excited, I've got a mention in Someone Else's Blog! Thanks Linda, I had to see where all the new hits were coming from. It's exciting and a bit awesome that a quilt I've had for so long is interesting for others. Can't wait for the Show and Tell.
