Last April I turned 50 years old and I thought it would be neat to commemorate my 50th year by making a quilt. The idea simmered on the back burner and didn't go any further than that. Then a week or so ago Lori at Humble Quilts mentioned the idea of doing a Jubilee quilt to celebrate turning 50 and that we (bloggers) should unite and do it together. What a great idea!
That lit the fire under my butt to get going.....I only have until near the end of April to finish my quilt! I decided I do want to do this in my 50th year - no cheating! :)
I have been working on replicating an antique quilt for a few months that I absolutely love and I have been trying to figure out what to name it. Well, now I know - Jubilee!! Obviously I am a little farther ahead in my progress than some of the other Jubilee participants but I still have a ways to go. I have been taking pictures of the steps because I knew I would someday post this quilt on the internet. Here is a picture of the first step.
Keep watching and I will show you my steps!
If you would like to join us in doing a Jubilee quilt to celebrate your 50th birthday this year please link up with us at The Jubilee Quilt Project and join in the fun!
