Designer Jean Anne Wright tells us that in an earlier century quilters exchanged album quilt blocks as a token of friendship. The center "x" in each block was often cut from plain muslin so sentiments and best wishes could be penned onto the fabric. The blocks were then signed by the maker so each quilter could be remembered. You can renew this treasured tradition by making this quilt too! www.newcastlefabric.com BASIC SKILLS NECESSARY This probably shouldn't be your first quilt...
