I found some great fabric online at Keepsake Quilters which was designed for Patchwork of the Crosses. It includes a lot of stripes and border-looking prints that should make great designs in that block! I can hardly wait to try it out!
Speaking of Patchwork of the Crosses, Sheila emailed me the other day about a movie "From Time to Time" with Maggie Smith in it. She said in the opening scene Maggie Smith's character is working on a POTC quilt. First of all, good eye Sheila for catching that! I had watch the movie of course and I found out that it was based on a
book by none other than Lucy M. Boston who made the original POTC quilt! Apparently she was an author as well as a quilter and wrote many books. The book this movie is based on is called "The Chimneys of Green Knowe". So I found it very fitting that the POTC quilt top showed up a couple of times in that movie :)
I also ordered some zoo animal fabric from Superior Threads. My grandchild is going to have a zoo animal themed nursery so I have to be prepared :)
