2011 Civil War BOM

Project Description

What was your source for this quilting project? Online Photo or Website Name of website or photo Civil War Chroncicles BOM Link to website or photo www.fatquartershop.com What are you most proud of? Well, so far just getting the first 3 months done. This is the center for the quilt. There are lots of seams because most of it is half square triangles. I am really loving it. This was a block of the month so every month last year I received the pattern and fabric. I have really never done a quilt like this where you making multiple blocks for each month. You start off with just making your first 16 1/2 block for the first month, but then you have to make 4 blocks 16 1.2 inches for the next 2 months. So I have finished the first 3 months. Now looking at the next month I have to make 8 each of 12 1/2 inch blocks. What advice would you give someone starting this project? Be patient with the half square triangles. It is really fun to put together. After you finish you really do feel like you accomplished something.
