|Eldress Nancy Elly Moore lived here|
during the Civil War.
So now let's get sewing on 'Feeding the Rebels' & 'Draft Threat', the first two blocks from the Nancy Elly Moore section of the 'Civil War Diary Quilt' book by Rosemary Youngs...
|I chose fabrics that resembled the colors shown in the book.|
|Sewing on the lines while paper piecing 'Feeding the Rebels'... notice I sew past the 1/4" seam lines.|
|'Feeding the Rebels' sections are done but not trimmed up yet...|
|The 'back' of my block after I trimmed up the sections, all ready to be put together.|
|Sewing the sections together, sewing on the 1/4" seam line. Remember to match your seam up before you sew so that you get those nice clean seams.|
|'Feeding the Rebels' all done!|
|My fabric choices for the block 'Draft Threat'|
|Paper piecing the block, sewing on the lines for each section...|
|'Draft Threat' all done!|
