Do you suffer from a case of "Startitis"?!?
I learned about this from blogger Tracy at Fiber Babble - click here to read her post called "If There's A Cure for This". She admits to collecting patterns for 24 BOM projects!
Now, I thought I had a severe case of "Startitis" but it's not nearly as bad as Tracy's illness! I initially tried to resist looking at the projects on her list, but I caved and looked at every single one - no will power :(
But I must admit that I had started the Civil War blocks from Barbara Brackman on her Civil War Quilts blog. Each Saturday she is posting an 8" block pattern and a civil war story.
I am making only the pieced blocks since I don't love applique (yet?) and am making my blocks in civil war reproduction blues. This might become a gift for my Mom who loves antique looking blue and white, but honestly I am finding it very boring to work with this colour palette, so we'll see how long I last!
The first 2 blocks went together easily, but the 2 blocks on the left, I would consider "advanced piecing" and I loved the challenge!
