Hi Dorothy,
Just wanted to say THANK YOU for your great blog and wonderful links. Your work is an inspiration! I am about to start work on "The Burnt Quilt." Feeling a little overwhelmed right now! This is my first journey into an historical quilt. It's so beautiful; dont want to make a mess of things. How is yours going? Can't wait to see your interpretation! I know it will be beautiful. Thank you for the photo you put up of it. Have you posted any close up photos of "Oh dear Mrs Thompkins AKA the Burnt Quilt" anywhere? If not, may we please see some?
