I should clarify that I'm having fun with it now, but I don't expect my fun to last for as long as it would take to get the results in some of these photos. More likely, I'll scatter a few ideas on the bolster and call it quits. I'm way too ADD to expect much more. That means we need to take advantage of the momentum I have going.

Another site that I found and enjoy is American Antique Crazy Quilts. This site provides information and photographs of antique quilts. It is written by Betsey Telford-Goodwin, an antique quilts expert who started Rocky Mountain Quilts, a professional restoration facility for antique quilts.
I love reading the information and looking at the quilts. If this site were published in book form, I'd purchase the book so that I could easily peruse it at my leisure.
The rest of the photos all come from my Pinterest board, which I've been collecting for about a week now knowing that I wanted to make this bolster using the crazy quilt style.
Isn't it funny that I have no plans of completing a project with so many time-consuming details, yet these are the one's I'm drawn to?
When we were younger and learning about the Victorian Era, my sisters accused me a few times of living in the wrong century. I supposed they just knew me and it's probably true that I'd have been very happy as a Victorian.
Another idea for a quick project using scraps....I really like this one!
And the last one is this update of my bolster cover. I worked on the vine that I started last night, adding some crewel leaves and blue beaded flowers. Not too bad for someone who hasn't embroidered in quite a long while, right?
What do you think? Should I take it out and start over or leave it in and hope that any errors blend in with the background?
