This project as well as my BOWs have been put aside as I have jobs to do! They are fun jobs... well most of them.
Duvet fabrics are in and work order arrived so that is ready to go. I rolled out the face fabric and lining yesterday to check for flaws and yardage. All good to go. The face fabric is a heavy upholstery chenille fabric. Gorgeous print with pine branches and cones. Very Tahoe. It is going to be a challenge, it will be VERY heavy and big, it's a King. Zipper closure instead of buttons. Not sure which is worse... Biggest challenge will be the stretch. Typical of upholstery fabric, the stretch is in the warp and this one is very stretchy. This one does not fall under the "fun job" category. VERY happy this will NOT be quilted!!!
The Civil War block and 1880s blocks will have to wait until the weekend.
Also VERY fun is I am waiting on a delivery of fabrics... from Julie Hendrickson Miniatures collection... for the 1880s sampler quilt. I can't wait to see them!!!

Added note: They came this afternoon!!! I LOVE them! Thank you Cheryl!!!!!!!!!!!
Off to work on the duvet...
