Quilters Accountability 8/18

I have a ONE TRACK mind right now. Althought sometimes it does lose track..... But my goal for last week and for the next few weeks ( alright maybe months) is to work on Bettys Reproduction Quilt.

Betty is a Great Aunt of mine. Her Husband was Capt. Doug and he was my Grandma's Cousin. He was a Capt. in the Navy, on an Aircraft carrier. When we would go to visit them I always learned something. Betty was a historian of epic proportions. I only wish she would have told me more and written things down for me!

This is as far as I have gotten.... so wish me luck that next week I have a block or two to show. For what others are up to go to http://crossroadsquilts.wordpress.com/ and do some encouraging!

I want to see a block or two...please?!

I love the colors, and your aunt sounds fascinating. Why is it when we are young we don't think to write all those wonderful stories down or to record them, and then by the time we are old enough to really appreciate them, and then it's too late! That is the same with my Grandma and Grandpa and also with my uncle.

I think you have a great start.. Sometimes just getting started is the hardest part.
