by Rosemary Youngs, machine quilted by Tammy Finkler, 2011
Rosemary has posted about her finished quilt with all the blocks.

I sent her the final blocks a few weeks early so she could get it quilted and ship it to C&T Publishing as we are planning to do a book on the blog and this will be one of the finished samples.
I love the way she makes each block an individual composition. Each has a personality but they go together well. It's a talent that has helped make her Civil War Love Letter and Civil War Diary books so popular.
My deadline for the finished manuscript for the book is January 3rd 2012---so you can see we are in a bit of a rush to get quilts finished. The book will be out in about a year. (Seems like a very long time from now.)
I am so grateful to her for finishing this for the book, despite the fact that she is working on books of her own.
I'll keep this blog up for at least half of next year so when you get your quilts finished send me pictures or post them on the Flickr page and I'll post them here.
She's very nice on her post in thanking me for all this work---but it really isn't work to me. I love to tell the stories and it gives me an excuse to read more---plus you guys did all the sewing.
