Civil War Wednesday

Two more blocks are added to my collection of civil war blocks. 
Block #32 is Carolina Lily 
It was a real challenge with the bias edged diamonds, and three set in seams to wrestle with. I am delighted that it came out to the correct size, and that it lies flat! (I skipped block #33 which uses templates...yuck!)

Block #34 is Rosebud 
This was an easy block to sew. The photo makes it look like one of the corners is too short, but it's not in real life.
Come back and visit on Monday when I will put all my blocks together for the design wall post.

  6. Two more blocks to add to the collection. Looking forward to seeing them all together. I have never tried inset seams - they look like they are quite a challenge.
