Civil War Quilt

I think I mentioned that 201 is the 150th Anniversary of the beginning of the Civil War. Not that celebrations are called for, but it is our history as a nation. Barbara Brackman, who has written extensively on this subject, is hosting a year-long blog on quilt patterns from this era and thought to be associated with the War.

She has posted now 5 blocks, each measuring 8.5" and here are four of them that I have made. The 5th is done but I already showed it in an earlier post (I think). All the fabrics were purchased at the Quilted Owl in Metairie, LA on Jefferson Hwy. They have a terrific selection of period reproduction fabrics.

I have no idea where this project will take me, but I am along for the ride!
