Hey, remember this one?
This is the Civil War Block of the Week that Barbara Brackman did some time ago. Well, I finally got it put together and am now hand quilting it. It is completely hand pieced. If you remember, it is a half-scale version. The blocks are 4" and the inner border is 3/4" square scrappy pieces. The outer border is the same fabric as the sashing. The backing is a striped leaf print, which is folded over the front edge and basted down to protect the edge of the border fabric. I am not using a hoop to quilt it, so it gets sort of thrown around and I didn't want the edges fraying. The outer border is sized according to the amount of fabric I had and happily the whole thing came out a crib size. So, one width of 44" wide fabric worked for the backing. I have no idea what I will use for binding. My sewing room is not set up yet, so I threw it over a love seat and took the pic, which as usual is not the best, but there it is.
