The Pokeberry Quilt

 
I've been wanting to make this quilt for years, watching Ebay or Etsy for a chance to buy the kit with the original fabrics are at least fabrics that reflect the look of the original design.  Found it on Ebay a few weeks ago.

 
The original design was a Girl Gang project from 2002-2003.  The seller taught the class so she had some of the blocks finished in this kit.
 
 
I should be able the sew one section this weekend together which would include the two top blocks on the left and the sashing so I can hand applique the Pokeberry stems and circles to that section.
 
 
If you subscribed to the Girl Gang, I did for several years, you received these extra projects like this notebook cover.
 
Thanks for all the comments on my wildlife pictures, quiet this week with little snow, but blowing winds and cold so I've only had some deer and my rabbit.

  3. Hi, Nancy,
    I'm glad you found the pattern you were looking for. It can be so frustrating when you want something that is "out of print". I always let the pokeberries grow here on the farm, it is so much fun to watch the robins get "drunk" on them in the fall.

  6. I have always loved this quilt too. I plan on buying the pattern. I would like to get a kit with original fabrics used, but I do have a lot of Jan's fabrics from 1992 through current.

    1. Hi, you are a no reply so thought to say that I'm envious of your fabrics if they go back to 1992. I didn't find prim and Jan's fabrics until about 1994, have been collecting ever since.

  9. Hi, I think one of my friends from a French quilters forum was bidding on this one too. But what with shipping etc. it would have been too expensive for her. Glad to see you making good progress on it. It's gorgeous (and it's gone to a good home).
