It is so hard to believe that the month of November is here, I am not sure where October went. It was a cold Halloween here in Michigan, we usually have 300 children at our door, this year we only had 166 children and most of those children were much older than usual.
November Patterns have been posted, made a couple changes in the original ones that I chose. The following series will be started, patterns are on the pattern page on the website.
1. The Nursery Rhyme Quilt Blocks
2. The Christmas Toy Quilt
3. Santas Parade
4. The Magic Vine Quilt
5. The Quilt of Many Stars
World War II quilt book is still slated to be released in January. I will let you know the details when it becomes available. I will say the World War II book was one of my favorites to work on, My father served in World War II so there was just more of a connection then there was to the Civil War.
It was so much fun to collect things for the book, not only researching the letters but the book is full of different sewing kits, photos and other war Momentos. One of my favorite things that I found in my searching were these little cards produced by Singer Sewing company. They were handed out to those that served in the military, they were only about 2 inches tall and the soldiers could use them to play dominoes.
Just might have to do a post some time on the sewing kits.
Have a great day today.
