"I believe the nicest and sweetest days are not those on which anything very splendid or wonderful or exciting happens, but just those that bring simple little pleasures, following one another softly, like pearls slipping off a string."

Civil War Quilt


For my birthday and an anniversary gift put together, Aaron got me a Quilt Block Of The Month Club. I chose a quilt designed and made from Civil War reproduction fabrics.You can check it out here. I LOVE Regency ear and Civil War era fabrics! So, once a month, after I get the blocks sewn, I will post pictures.

Each block or set of blocks is for a battle. This month was Fort Sumter. Two blocks. One at 18in and on at 12in.

Aren't the fabrics just wonderful! I have them tacked to the wall, so I can see them all the time. I can't wait for my next blocks!
