|My fabrics are similar to what is shown in Rosemary Youngs book, The Civil War Diary Quilt.|
|I printed up the foundation paper using the companion CD. The block is broken down into three sections. I wrote the fabric colors in the different sections so that I can keep track as I sew along.|
|Sewing on the lines... remember to sew pass the line 1/4" to form a 'seam'.|
|The three sections are sewn and trimmed, all ready to be pieced together. This is a 'Churn Dash' block...|

Remember to post you Civil War Saturday blocks on the flickr group! I love to see photos. Rosemary has a new book out. 'The Civil War Anniversary Quilt' There is also a companion CD available which I highly recommend if you buy the book. I've gotten a copy of her new book. Instead of making one big quilt she has broken it down into three smaller quilts. It'll be awhile before I tackle a quilt from her new book. Need to get my Civil War Diary Quilt done first. You can order her book through her website.
Happy quilting and perfect stitches to you,
