As you can see, I'm still plugging along on my Civil War Diary quilt. I've been working on this project for years! I read Rosemary's book years ago and fell in love with the quilt but then again I love history. I love quilting and when both are combined, awesome! The block I'm showing you today is called 'Bombardment'. I have been keeping the color scheme somewhat similar to what Rosemary did in her book. I like the pink fabric I had in my Civil War Stash.

|I've been cutting my pieces down to easier to manage|
triangles for my paper piecing. I also write the colors on
my foundation paper to make it easier while sewing so I don't
put the wrong fabric in a section.

Have a wonderful week! Remember to post your progress on the Civil War Diary Quilt Group on Flickr.
I will be working on 'The Longest Morning' out of Rosemary's book next. Hope that you have a great! I'm hoping to find some time to quilt, but I have been super busy getting ready for Market.
Happy quilting and perfect stitches to you!
