Re-Piecing the Past: Civil War Blocks Then & Now »
Type of item: Functional
Style: Retro / Vintage, Classic, Traditional
My stash :)
What was your inspiration?
My interest in the time period was my initial interest in taking the class. After the introduction, I was totally hooked on Kaye's style and approach! I hope she will do another Craftsy class soon!
What are you most proud of?
I learned not only how to make the blocks presented in this class, but Kaye gave us tools to take with me, but throughout out quilting life! My abilities were challenged, but with the great instructions given, I met them and I believe I did quite well, if I do say so myself!
What advice would you give someone starting this project?
Take lots of video notes. Pay close attention to how the cuts and blocks are made and why they are done. When you learn these things, not just blindly following what the instructions say, you can make any quilt you want. You can expand or reduce to make any block you want :) and most of all, ENJOY!
