In the fall my friend Laurel noticed I pinned The Spirit of Sacagawea quilt to my quilt board on Pinterest.  She then emailed and asked me if this was a quilt we could each make and have sewing time together.  I answered "OK" because I love being with her, she is such fun and a great encourager!!!  We decided we would pick two blocks a month, one applique and one pieced.  If you look at the book by Simpson & Minick they did the entire quilt in red, white & blue.  I just couldn't sew a blue leaf on my quilt or a red horse, so we both decided we would choose our own colors.  Did I get myself into trouble?  Here's what I've sewn so far, with a couple more I haven't taken pictures of yet.  Please check out Laurel's blog to see her blocks.


  1. Your blocks look fantastic!! I finished my Horses block yesterday so I'll need to post them soon.

  2. I like you blocks. I was doing a search and came across your blog. The search was for images of Janet Bolton quilts.
