Now for the funnest bit. Have you seen pics of this quilt from the V&A exhibiton last year?
Isn't it amazing! Well Marta from http://cartulinas.wordpress.com/2011/01/29/el-rey-jorge-pasando-revista-a-las-tropas has begun a Sew Along to make the 16 different blocks surrounding the centre panel of King George III reviewing the troops.
She has drafted the blocks from the original which was made in 1803. The rosettes are @ 6" in diameter but you could make them any size you like. She will be releasing one block each month starting January so there are three already. Her blog is in Spanish and sometimes the Google translation can be quite amusing. However her PDF patterns are in English
Sue Prichard the curator of the exhibition has a few interesting things to say about the quilt here and Janet Bottomley has posted some more pics on her blog here.
There is even a Flickr group here.
