So let me show you my block titled, 'Lincolnites Whipped'... so what is a Lincolnite. Well a Lincolnite is a follower of Abraham Lincoln and his policies. Lincolnites support/serve the 'northern' side of the Civil War.
|Here are the fabrics I'm working with for this block...|
|Paper piecing appears 'messy' until you trim your sections...|
|Sewing along the 'line' for the seam, sewing sections together.|
It's so different not having to pay attention to my quarter inch
seam, it's all drawn out for me on the foundation paper!

Have a wonderful week! Remember to post your progress on the Civil War Diary Quilt Group on Flickr.
I will be working on 'Love Letter' out of Rosemary's book next. Hope that you have a great weekend! I've survived my first week back at school... time to rest up. It great to see the kids again and see how much they've grown over the summer! I need to work on a routine and get back to juggling being a library clerk and quilt pattern designer....
Happy quilting and perfect stitches to you!
Check out Rosemary's website. Her books and Cd's can be ordered there too!
