I have exciting news to share with them too. My co-author for Love and Valor, has agreed to work with me on a book for the Staffinger quilt too. This would happen only after completion of the L&V book first. I'm sure the family will be thrilled. They are totally supportive of my sharing this quilt and keeping Christopher's story alive.
Here are some photos of this cherished quilt:

|A closer look at the madder prints.|
|The cinnamon pink binding was possibly added later by his wife. It's machine sewn.|
|There are 3 blocks in pink, one in yellow, and one in blue. Christopher seemed to have depleted the brown prints in his mother's scrap bag!|
|Here is a peek at the hand-quilting he did, not pretty, but he tried.|
I'm sure I'll have pictures to share of my adventure today, so check in tomorrow. Till then, keep stitching!
