It is the 14th anniversary this year of first appearance of one of my favorite designs, “Railroad Crossing.” Do you have the issue of Better Homes and Garden’s American Patchwork and Quilting when it first appeared on the cover?
This quilt was a reproduction from a friend’s antique quilt collection. I did hand piece all the blocks (without stamps back then) and loved every minute of the sewing.
After urging from my quilting friends, I included “Railroad Crossing” and a smaller version, “Whistle Stop” in the 3rd “Handwork in the Smokies” seminar.
Now both quilt patterns and a set of stamps are available again. This was formerly known as the “sunburst” set of stamps, like the singer formerly known as Prince. 🙂 If you don’t have instructions for the railroad crossing and HAVE the sunburst set of stamps, send me a sase and I’ll gladly send them to you.
