Colleen's Betsy-Tacy quilt





I'd never heard of the "Betsy-Tacy" books before Colleen arrived, but now she's kindly given me a copy of two of the books! Needless to say, I dove right in to that!
Sadly, the photo I took of the entire quilt top was really blurry, so there's only the one photo of the block. Solid black backing really made the quilting stand out though.
Now I can't wait to see what happens in the books.

AHA! Fabulous quilt, love the quilting you chose. And (of course) I am a HUGE BT Fan. Did you use ink-jet style sheets for the blocks, or did you score the blocks from the MHL society? Have you had a chance to read more of the tomes? They are all available as ebooks now. The collective fans of BT have a very special e-group, and we'd love to hear from you. (Besides, I'd love to have a fellow quilter/BT fan on the list)

Check out another version of this quilt at:

The Betsy-Tacy Society sold the block sat a convention about 12 years ago. They are no longer available. The post listed has links to their site, and perhaps if there is enough interest, they will offer them again!
