As usual, Fons & Porter have done an excellent job covering quilt heritage with modern applications of the same same block, making it all sensible as possible, with plenty of fun options!
We're going to make Marti Mitchell's amazing Linked Chevron log cabin here, our first project of the new year, so stay tuned...
This project could work in lots of fabric themes. What do you think? 30's, civil war, valor, oh- Christmas colors! Help me decide, --Mom
