I am now caught up with Barbara Brackman's Civil War Quilt Blocks again. Except for the dreaded Seven Sisters! I think I'll skip that ;) My blocks are now uploaded to my Flickr set here.
I must admit some of the blocks turned out not exactly 8-1/2" square. I hope to remedy that by introducing borders and / or sashing. But that can be figured out at a later time. I had a lot of help from the excellent tutorials done by Ellen of American Homestead. There might be some blocks that I will re-do but that can wait.
Elyte who is enjoying her sewing retreat right this moment. Love those tape measure like twill tapes, it'll be great for some sewing finishes. So glad my signature block got to her before her retreat. I did not get a picture taken of that. Speaking of signature blocks ...
Midnight Stars QAL, perhaps we could do up a quilt for Lori. So18 of us decided on a pattern and sent them to Karen K. Karen did a wonderful job piecing and hand quilting it. Lizzy helped out further by sending a piece of vintage backing. Here's Lori's blog post. My only regret is not using a pigma marker for the signature. I had one which was too fine, but I got a thicker one later from Bird Brain Designs.
This-N-That Fabrics. Love those blues.
