Happy New Year!
January is here. Time for resolutions and new starts. Every year, Gay and I have a list of all the quilts we're going to make that year. This year our resolve is not to make the list! <G>
As for Ben Biggs, we're starting on the second half of this beautiful quilt! Block #13 is very pretty and full of sentiment with lots of inking.
Benjamin Biggs Block #13
Eleanor M Biggs July 20, 1848
By The Ladies For Benjamin Franklin Biggs 1848
The corner passages are numbered, beginning with the lower left
1st Flowers seek the
light, their beauties to display,
2nd The stars
that gem life's morning sky,
pleasure, at its birth
4th Life is but a
shadow - save a promise given
I'm looking forward to your comments about this special block and the poems on it. What poems will you include on your block? I also can't wait to see the blues you choose for your flowers. For two years, I've been pondering this center blue, and of course, collecting for it, and still can't make up my mind!
Keep posting your ideas and photos on the Facebook page and yahoo list!
