Today Barbara Brackman shared the introduction and fabric requirements for Yankee Diary, her upcoming 2017 block of the month series, set to begin the last Wednesday in January.
It will be a sampler quilt inspired by the diary of a young girl who lived in New York in the mid-1800s. Both piecing and applique will be included, and the blocks will be variable in size and placement. In general, it will feature a somewhat 'patriotic' theme. I'm looking forward to it!
Meanwhile, I pulled out my partial set of blocks from Brackman's Morris Hexathon series. Because wouldn't it be great to finish the quilt from that series before I start the new one?!
