Love Letter

Love letter.... when was the last time you received a love letter... it's been awhile for me.... I might have gotten a couple from my sweetie before we were married... I'm sure they are tucked away somewhere in my closet. I'm now lucky if I get a sappy Hallmark card. I can't imagine my boys writing an actual love letter, writing for young people these days is a text message.  I do hope that my boys will someday take the time to write a sweet letter to their loved ones. Will we loose our ability to write letters to one another with today's technology? Just think, back in the 1800's, the only way to communicate with your loved ones when miles separated you, was a written letter. No wonder letters were tucked away in boxes tied with ribbon, they were so treasured. In war time, sometimes the written words from their soldier is all they have left....

So let me show you my block titled, 'Love Letter'...

I picked out fabric from my Civil War stash that was similar to the
picture in Rosemary's book.
I find it helpful  to write the colors on my foundation paper.

Have a wonderful week! Remember to post your progress on the Civil War Diary Quilt Group on Flickr.

I will be working on 'Knitting and Reading' out of Rosemary's book next. Hope that you have a great weekend!

Happy quilting and perfect stitches to you!
Check out Rosemary's website.  Her books and Cd's can be ordered there too!
