made today, after I had folded and stacked all my freshly washed Civil War reproduction fabrics, I thought I needed a bit of a reward, so I made a couple of blocks, there are already 9 blocks posted on the Civil War Quilts blog so I need to think about catching up.
Log Cabin block
I made my Log Cabin block differently to the one on the Civil War Quilts blog, I like how it has turned out.
Making these blocks is a bit different to making the DJ blocks, they are twice as big and I have to put a bit more thought into picking the fabrics.
The start of my Seven Sisters block, I will do this quite slowly, I have very short thumb-nails at the moment which makes it a little bit harder to do applique :) I also need to buy a darker colour silk thread to applique with, the cream isn’t really the best choice.
