October 24, 2012

For the past three days, I have been putting the borders and flange on my Christmas wreath quilt.  I also put the three layers together and pinned it all together.  I am ready to start quilting the three layers together but I have not mastered this part of completing the project.  Instead I put it aside and have tried to catch up on a couple of quilts that I need to finish.

Block 1
Anna Marie Hennen Hood

Wife of Gen. John Bell Hood
The Generals' Wives

Over the last year, I have belonged to a block-of-the-month quilt group, General Wives, a "Historical Quilt Series," by The Quilter's Quarters in Leavenworth, Kansas,  I did mention this in one of my the previous writings.  It is now coming to a close and I have 10 months of blocks and 3 settings done.  I have two more months to finish and the last portion of putting it all `together.  

Block 2
Eliza Brooks (Ellis) Bragg

Wife of Gen. Braxton Bragg
Unfortunately, I don't know how to change the contrast, change the color saturation well on the software that I have connected with my digital camera.  I apologize for my ignorance.  The blocks
work well together but you can't tell by 
these pictures. 

Block 8
Flora Cooke Stuart

Wife of Gen. J.E.B. Stuart
