Re-Piecing the Past: Civil War Blocks Then & Now »
Type of item: Home Decor
Civil War Reproduction and French Reproduction fat quarters
What was your inspiration?
Kay England! I've always loved her work and have wanted to take a class from her. Now I can! :)
What are you most proud of?
Completing the first 6 blocks and maintaining a scrappy look.
What advice would you give someone starting this project?
It's hard not to press before the block is done, but it does keep the block more square. Just be careful that the seams don't "fold" and crease away from the true seam.
