Yeah! It's Saturday and I was up and eager to check the Barbara Brackman blog where she introduces a new block each week to commerate the Civil War which began 150 years ago. Civil War block website here She is creating a new block every week for 52 weeks. So far I have kept up and we are on the nineteenth block. Today's is Missouri Star.
Along with the block she provides stories and photographs that relate to the block. I am using a number of fabrics designed to look like fabric typical of the era. They are commonly called Civil War reproduction fabrics. Here are the 19 I have completed to date.
