       Having finished the piecing of my hexi quilt I've given myself permission to finally start work on another quilt from my To-Do List.  Winner is The Civil War Bride Quilt, based on the Bird of Paradise Quilt in the American Folkart Museum in New York City.

It will be another slow project, but these days I have nothing but time and I'm fortunate to be able to spend as much as I want of it on quilting and piecing.  I'm particularly fond of appliqué so I know I will enjoy this journey.  

The first block is finished.


So many versions of this quilt are available to admire and give inspiration.  


The pattern by  Corlis Search is available here
