|Strawberries from my garden this year....|
Here is how I completed 'Gardening' from the Civil War Diary Quilt Book....Remember to post your progress on the Civil War Diary Quilt Group on Flickr
|Using some of my favorite colors from my Civil War stash I picked out these fabrics to do the block with...|
|The center of this block is tiny.... you can tell by the picture. I was 'scared' to do this block at first because of the teenie tiny center but paper piecing makes it so easy!|
|Here's what the back looks like.... you can see how I sew a 1/4" past each seam line on the block.|
|'Gardening' was broken up into three sections, this shows the 'center' section.|
This is a favorite of mine!
As we say goodbye to Hannah we will move onto the next chapter of the book next week. Isabella Buchanan Edmondson, she was a Confederate spy! I will be working on the block called 'Thousands of Diamonds'.
Rosemary Youngs has a new book coming out in May 2012. I can't wait!
Check out Rosemary's website. Her books and CD's can be ordered there too!
