First Three Rows of the 1718 Coverlet

I'm having so much fun with the 1718 Coverlet!

The first three rows are sewn together.

I'm sticking with the original colors as much as I can, 
adding a few Dutch repro prints, plus some stripes and dots.  

I'm also simplifying some of the blocks. 
This project is addictive!

My Latest Obession--The 1718 Coverlet!

Ever since my dear friend, Katell, posted about The 1718 Coverlet 
last January, my quilting mind has been able to think of little else.

I've been gathering fabrics, 

Piecing little 5 inch blocks,

 and brushing up on my appliqué skills.

They have a plan to finish the quilt by the end of the year.
Not me.  I'm giving myself until 2018.

I also went to see the tulips in LaConner / Mt. Vernon Washington, last weekend.  
Always a stunning show!
