SCHOOL'S IN SESSION!
If this is your first visit to the classroom, we're studying the Civil War, and our text book is Barbara Brachman's Civil War Sampler. We've all grabbed a pile of Pam Kitty Love and we've gotten started on our homework, which is 5 blocks at month. I hope you decide to sit by me!
Here's my five blocks. I'm going to start at the beginning of the book and work my way through it. You can hop over to the Fat Quarter Shop blog and check out Kimberly's and Debbie's blocks.
Block One: The White House
Block Two: Star of the West
Block Three: Barbara Frietchie Star
Block Four: Catch Me If You Can
Block Five: Hovering Hawks
I love how bright and cheerful these blocks are. Five blocks a month is a nice tidy amount, you can take your time and really think about your cutting and stitching. It's also a nice time to reflect on our lives now with so many conveniences, can you imagine living back the 1800s?
