So without further ado  -- Here's my newest project - a reproduction of a 1930's quilt that I modernized with the use of bright vibrant batiks.  Made for the 2012 American Quilt Study Group - Colonial Revival Quilts of the 1920's and 30's Study Challenge.  I'm excited to announce that it will be published in a book next year by the Kansas City Star/ Pickle Dish Company.  The book will also include a wonderful pickle dish/wedding ring quilt made by my talented sister Donna which is part of the Challenge Traveling collection.
