Today we're looking back to one of my favorite collections - Seeds of Time - my 6th fabric line for Moda and the 5th quilt in the Quilters Journal series. Set in the mid-1800's, Lily and her family have been in Kansas for 20 years. The stage is set with a garden of beautiful flowers where her two oldest children will marry their loved ones in a double ceremomy under a new arbor built by their father. If you're interested in reading Lily's journal, all six of the Quilters Journal stories are available in a book (no quilt patterns) on sale now for just $9.95.
One of the challenges of this series was creating projects from the blocks in the quilt, too. The most popular has been a simple blue and white lap quilt called Bachelor Buttons. In the story, Lily pieced this quilt for her oldest son before he wed. This picture was taken in Kathy Haddock's yard - one of the most beautiful gardens I've seen.
This wool/cotton rolled sewing kit is also in Seeds of Time. It's one I carry with me on the road and holds everything I need. Call Robert for our weekly special - the Seeds of Time book for only $15! Both of these projects could be in single patterns soon, if my blogging test group votes positively. Let me know what you think and you'll be signed up for the Seeds of Time charm pack giveaway, too.
See you on the road this weekend!
