Starting Phebe

I've started working on the Phebe quilt by Di Ford.  I've had the pattern for awhile now, and at the retreat I went on in Shipshewana, IN, in April I discovered that two friends there were also collecting fabrics for the quilt.  We are having fun looking for the fabrics and mailing them back and forth to each other. 

We are trying to collect fabrics to make our quilts look as much like the original quilt as possible.  I got a little anxious and started working on my center block.  The top, bottom and sides of the vase are not appliqued' yet because there are pieces that go underneath. 

The original hill fabric is from the Chelsea Boutique line, but I settled for this piece of Buggy Barn fabric (above).   Then this afternoon in my Christmas fabric stash, I found the one in the photo below.   So I may start over or switch to this fabric. 

This will be another long term project but it has been a lot of fun so far.

I hope you are finding some time to stitch today.

Thanks for stopping by today!
