My bride decided to try her hand at patchwork, and I think she did a good job for her first try.
She did a better job than I did getting it square in the photo.

Considering she started with this lithograph, and painstakingly measured and scaled everything up to make her a pattern. Sorry about the reflection.

The Lithograph is of my great, great, great Grandfathers house he built in 1810 and now stands on the grounds of the Kentucky Museum on the campus of Western Kentucky University.
Known as the Felts Log House it's furnished with period furniture and used to educate the next generations on early life in Kentucky.

Your bride did a terrific job, and I congratulate the folks at WKU and everyone responsible for preserving the home. Within the past few months a historic home has been torn down near us. Its logs are to be saved and re-assembled in the town's park.

Dave it was where the Persimmon Festival was held. The land and buildings could have been saved as an historic site, but the heirs decided otherwise. I do not know the size of the original log home, as additions were made later in time. It was a two story large home. It was solid and could have made a pretty place to live, but it would be hard to find someone willing to make it a home. A couple of farm buildings have also been taken down. A feed barn and a tobacco packhouse remain.

I did not mean to hijack the post, but historic things and sites become officially historic when they are saved.
