Civil War Quilt


Barbara Brackman is starting a new Block of the week on her blog, http://civilwarquilts.blogspot.com/ I debated about starting it, my Civil War fabric was hard to get to, then I stumbled across a stack of Mary Koval for Blank Quilting fabric from 2007 - and it spoke to me. I did add the red fabric (an old Elly Sienkiewicz Baltimore Beauties) that I have had for a while. Eventually things work!
This is block #1, Catch Me if you can. The blocks are 8", I used Marti Michell templates B-11 and B-13, assembling it in quarters, then stitching the quarters together, and finally, the block.

your block is very nice.

I like your Block. Did the instructions include how to use MArti Michell's Templates? My Civil War fabrics are hidden too. I hope to get a bunch in my FQ Swap that I get to open on my B-day. I see a lot of Civil War BOM's going on already this year.
Plus Jennifer C. is doing her Loyal Union Sampler.

the instructions did not include how to use MM templates, I just love them and use them whenever possible. I will be doing the Loyal Union sampler in non-CW fabrics, primarily white, blue and yellow.

Your block is lovely. My fabric resource center (aka stash) is primarily 19th century repros. It would be the brights or anything else that I personally would have to dig around for.
