Starting on a new adventure and I am so excited. Something about this book and quilt has me really drawn to it. Therefore I am going to do my best to blog, journal and enjoy the ride.
For those of you that have not heard about Hobo Quilts by Debra G. Henninger, then read on and follow along with me. I know you'll want to join in on the fun. Even if you don't plan on making this quilt it is very interesting reading and learning how the Hobo's lived and survived. We are a new Yahoo group run by Stephanie Gallegos. Thank you Stephanie for organizing this for everyone to enjoy.
Here is a picture of one of many layouts from the book that shows the finished quilt- designed by Debra Henninger and Pieced and appliqued by Debra Henninger and Sharon Janzen and quilted by Jeri Rennie are they some talented people or what?
For my 1St. Block -BE AFRAID these are the fabrics I chose. I want to stay as close to the book picture as I possibly can.
My cutting layout:
My finished block:
I have also been going through my stash and pulling out fabrics that I thought would work, and have made myself a shopping list so I don't repeat buying the same fabrics...ha ha admit it you do it too!
For now, thanks for reading and come back to check on the progress of the HOBO QUILT and my other projects.
Bye Nancy in Sunny St. Louis, MO.
