What materials did you use? Civil War prints

What are you most proud of? That I finished this block. I sewed the wrong seams together 3 times and had to unsew and try again. Finally I got it right. Whew!

What advice would you give someone starting this project? Take your time on this one. If you are spatially-challenged like me, you might need to double check before sewing the four quadrants together.

Great job, nothing wrong with taking it apart to get it right - some days my seam ripper is my most used tool !
