Month One

Back to School with Pam Kitty

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?  
Did you make some blocks? Please add them to the flickr group so I can check them all out! You'll find some special news about the group over at the Jolly Jabber, so be sure and check there! There's still time to get started! Classroom isn't in session again till January 15th!

Looks gorgeous! I was going to do a Farmers wife-ish quilt out of Pam Kitty fabric. I think it will come up looking really cute like your civil war blocks.

I agree with Melissa P. PKM in the 1800s. Color Photography would have been invented WAY sooner!! Fabulous Blocks! You are so good!!!!

Are the blocks templates because I wanted to do the Farmer's wife as well, but I don't like templates...

I wanted to do this and it looks so fun. But I'm not sure I can handle it. I love how the civil war looks in PKL. Love it.
