Civil War Block of the Week
Like many of my blog friends - I decided to follow along with Barbara Brackman's weekly Civil War sew-along for 2011.
These are the first 2 weekly blocks I've completed.
I'm not comfortable with random scrappy colors so I created a controlled palette for my blocks & quilt. I'm calling my color theme: Early American Patriot which will include colonial shades of red, blue, gray, black & shirting prints.
Each week Barbara will post a block to sew along with facts, events and photo's from the Civil war era. She has created a special blog for this project to commemorate the 150th anniversary of the Civil War.
You will find a link to her site on the sidebar of my blog.
every Quilt tells a story....
