Civil War Wednesday

My plan to make 2 blocks each week to catch up to the Civil War Blog updates is working out really well. 


On the right is finished block #19 Missouri Star.


I also took a photo to show how I lay out all the pieces on my 12 1/2" ruler before I sew anything. Then I can change any of the pieces that I don't like...as I did with the centre square on this block.






My second block for this week is #20 called New England Block.
Both of these blocks were fun to sew and came out to the correct size (8 1/2").
At this rate, I will be completely caught up in 6 weeks!

Love the blocks, colours and prints. Delicious.

Can you say you are trying to catch up when you haven't even started yet?
Each block you post makes me think, "Today is the day I start!" Then my real life takes over and I am lucky if I sew on my WIP, let alone start something new. : )

The block layout is a great idea. I love the unsewn block, but the change you made is just perfect!
