The block I'm showing you today is called 'Poor Columbia'. This block uses dark fabrics except for the white fabric that sets off the 'arrows'. Again I am choosing fabric that is similar to what the author used in her book. This is another of my favorite blocks.
|Here are the pictures I choose to use for this block. But I|
also threw in a third dark fabric and used it so that the square in
a square block stood out a little more.

Have a wonderful week! Remember to post your progress on the Civil War Diary Quilt Group on Flickr.
I will be working on 'Churches Spared' out of Rosemary's book next. Hope that you have a great weekend! Shhhh it's my birthday weekend, I hoping to get around to spending some time quilting, and eating some cake...
Happy quilting and perfect stitches to you!
