This particular book is about an event in 1824 that threatened massive and bloody Indian reprisals for the murder of some peaceful Indians including women and five children by five white men. There is little known about this massacre, but Miss West has woven a story from it that I am sure will be interesting and historical.
This is what I ended up with. Never say I will pass up a good fabric buy when I see one. Oh, I ended up going to Ady's quilt store in Morgantown and picked up three pieces that are in the picture also. The yellow flowered fabric on the right are actually four table napkins that I am going to use to make summer pillows for my family room.
When I get new fabric I cannot wait to cut into it and start a project. I have numerous projects going at any one time and some of them I get done! There are so many blogs with women who have the same disease I have who can't resist beautiful fabrics and love to make things from it. Some people think it's crazy to buy a whole piece of fabric, cut it into pieces and then sew it back together again. If nothing else, it's theraputic and keeps me off the streets and out of the bars so I will take my vice over someone else's any day. At the end I have a useful object, a gift or a warm cover for the bed. What more could one ask. I have a friend who has been bitten by the fabric bug just lately and I will be writing about her new venture into quilting and how addictive buying fabric can be. Bye
