I am finally all caught up on the Barbara Brackman Civil War Sampler blocks! The Flickr group dedicated to this project is a great source of inspiration. I followed the lead of some other quilters and used a Blockbase variation on the Blockade block with a serpentine fabric to mimic the Anaconda strategy of the North closing off the South.
And I followed the lead again in using some of Barbara Brackman’s “Union” reproduction fabric when making the Union Square block.
I really love the Missouri Star design.
And, finally, the Ladies’ Aid Album block which was posted yesterday. I used a Blockbase variation on this one which emphasized the cross effect (cause I liked it better).
And all this means I am really truly all caught up. Yeah, Terrie!
