I am sewing along with the Shenandoah Valley Botanical Quilt project - the pattern is provided by the Virginia Quilt Museum and all pattern sales benefit the museum. Dawn, from Collector with a Needle, and Doreen, from Aunt Reen’s Place, are hosting a quiltalong for this quilt, here.
This is my version of a block from a prior month, labelled Liberty Tree. I thought of skipping this one, I didn't think it looked "right" with my blocks so far...BUT
Open letter to Esther Blair Shaw(the original maker):
Oh my Esther, how foolish I was to doubt you, the block I didn't think I liked has now become one of my favorites. Big surprise, I am using wool...umm...and these are pennies, silly Kris.
