I am SO excited. I am joining in on the project with Cindy Thury Smith and will be stitching these two blocks for her. These pictures are of the blocks she sent me to work on. These blocks are HUGE.... at least 14 inches!!! She is re-creating a crazy quilt that will hang in the LeDuc mansion! Apparently they were very linear in their work, so i'm hoping that the herringbone and cretan type stitches with variations will be a good interpretation! Anyway, this is a good experience and I look forward to seeing the quilt when its complete! Its somehow comforting to know that at least a teensy piece of something I have stitched on will live on in history! VBG!

I love the centers of the blocks. What a wonderful project to be a part of. I look forward to seeing how you stitch them. I have a feeling you are going to be busy for a while! =)
