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!
