Today was the last of the CWR blocks. I didn't start until about July, but it has been a wonderful journey for me. I learned so much about Civil War History, quilt block history, and my ability to make many different blocks.
#52 Christmas Star and #53 Union Shield
I've opted to set my blocks 7 X 8 with sashing and cornerstones and add a 6 inch border. So, in order to have enough blocks, I made 3 more to make 56.
Swallow, Flock and a Fox and Geese Variation
Then I also made four 6" blocks for the corners of the border. Not sure when I'll assemble the top (I'm comprising my "2012 Quilt Schedule"), but I would like to finish it by next fall.
Happy New Year !!
