I decided my first project would be to complete the Voices of the Past series. WOW! WOW! WOW! is all I can say. This series is made up a collection of women's lives. The pattern comes with a brief yet very interesting history of each of the women. Some of them have their own quotes printed in the history and then others have quotes printed by someone else about that woman.
Most of the block patterns are fairly simple. And then there are others that are a bit more challenging. There is one (which I will post later) that has been named the "character building block". Yes, my character matured a bit with that block! The instructions come two ways ~ one is a specialty ruler piecing method and the other is the traditional piecing method. Most of the patterns in the series only have one block, but there are a few that have two. Each pattern has instructions to be completed as a quilt for that individual block or two. I decided that I was going to make each of the individual blocks and then put them together into a quilt.
