This is the quilt. Connie taught on the cruise, the one on the right. It is in our book Civil War Remembered and when Connie returned from the cruise she had a number of individual patterns left which we will make available to anyone for $10. The quilt on the left is a smaller version of Quest For Freedom and we will include those directions as well.
If you already own the original pattern or the book and would like just the smaller version cutting recipe, we will slip it into an envelope for $5.00. Connie is shown here with 2 small versions that we made in contemporary fabrics . Here are some close ups.
I made the orange and black one – remember I showed you a little corner of it before Connie took it on the cruise. All the spacer squares in the center were cut from thrift store shirts. Can’t wait to start on another shirt quilt of some kind.
Here is Connie’s current handwork project – isn’t it sweet? She’s going to continue adding to it so it will fit a twin bed.
We’re going to call this Volas’s quilt because that’s who made it for Steve and Nancy. Kathy, Cheryl and I started cutting it out last night. My next post will be Volga’s quilt with pictures and all the measurements. Want to keep it separate so you can find it easily.
Quest For Freedom pattern, 2 sizes – $10.00
Quest For Freedom – small size only – $5.00
