I have been following a blog "The Civil War Quilts" created by Barbara Brackman. To commenorate the Anniversary she is posting a different quilt block every week, explaining the relationship of the block to the war and giving some civil war history.
I was in a quilt store today and decided that I would do the quilt, so I stocked up on Civil War prints . Barbara started in January, so I'm a little behind; but I just finished the first two blocks-
"Catch Me if You Can". .
and "North Star"
I'll show you the rest as I catch up and throughout the year.
