This weekends block is titled 'Bad Box'. Let's get started....
|Working from Rosemary Youngs book, "Civil War Diary Quilt' I choose fabrics that are similar in color as what is presented. I did go with a darker green then what was pictured.|
|I cut my fabric into 2 and 3 inch strips to make it easier to work with while paper piecing.|
|Here you can see how I line up my fabric right sides together on the back side of my foundation paper.|
|Sewing on the line.... remember to sew past the 1/4" seam allowance....|
|I only have the corner pieces left....|
|Paper piecing the corner sections...|
|My sections of the block before I trim them up.... sorta messy...|
|All trimmed and ready to be sewn together....|
|Sewing the sections together....|
|"Bad Box" July 7, 1863|

Next Saturday, June 4th, I will be working on the next block titled "Robbers" from the Civil War Dairy Quilt Book by Rosemary Youngs.
Hope that you're able to join me in my journey. Feel free to email me any time if you have questions or comments.
Wishing you a Happy Memorial Day. Take time to thank and remember all of the men and women who have served and are serving our country for the freedoms that we enjoy on a daily basis.
Happy quilting and perfect stitches to you!
