Southern Notes

I worked on one block this last weekend for Civil War Saturday.  Having not really thinking through how I would handle my blog while I'm not at home.  I spent this last weekend on Quilt Retreat at Cozy Home Stitches in Kasson, Minnesota.  Had a wonderful time and will blog about it later this week.  I have so many pictures to share!!  So I am posting my Civil War Diary Quilt block really late.  I worked on 'Southern Notes' while on retreat.  I used colors similar to what is in Rosemary Youngs book, The Civil War Diary Quilt.  The gals at retreat loved the blocks I had done so far and loved the book!  The block, 'Southern Notes' is broken down into two paper piecing sections and is fairly easy to do.
Here I am sewing along, paper piecing,notice how I am sewing on the line and I stitch past the 1/4" seam allowance, it's easier to trim a block then to 'add' onto a block.... I also have marked each section with the color choice.  Otherwise I get goofed up while I sew along.
