If you are joining us for the first time today…this is what’s going on. Today is the third day of our Olivia’s Sampler summer block of the week! We first did Olivia’s Sampler ten years ago…it started in September of 2004. We had our 10 year anniversary June 4th, and i thought that doing a little summer throwback would be tons of fun! So, alas, here we are.
Before we move on to pictures…i have a couple links for you today.
If you are interested in a kit…here is the link… Olivia’s Sampler Floral Kit. Our kit is for a fat 8th bundle of florals and bleached muslin (which will be used in place of the background in every block and the black on tan floral in the sashing, corner stones, and border), and unbleached muslin (which will be used in place of the solid black in the sashing, corner stones, border and binding). Our floral bundle will be the same bundle in the kit.
Interested in a civil war kit…drop me a line. The prints we used in 2004 are no longer available, but i can do my best to get you a kit of fabrics as similar as possible.
If you are interested in reading the intro to Steamer Trunk Treasure…here is link…The Life & Times of Olivia J Cowden.!
