Civil War Quilt - Last Blocks!

I have finished all the blocks that I am going to sew for my Civil War Quilt...woohoo!!
This is Block #50 - Grapes of Wrath. The blog post recalls the interesting story of the writing of the "Battle Hymn of the Republic".








And last but not least, is Block # 52 Christmas Star. I used up a lot of odds and ends to piece this block, and it doesn't look anything like a star!


Now I will hunt around my sewing room and collect up all the blocks and see what I have ended up with.

Wonderful blocks Kathy and lovely fabric.

Very scrappy star block. I don't see a star either! But both blocks look wonderful. What a great journey you've made in CW prints.

Congrats on finishing 50! I am still trying to get to mine this month. Haven't made it yet- Busy Week with Guild and stuff! I like the scrappiness of the Christmas Block.

Will we see all the blocks on your design wall on Monday??? I am looking forward to seeing all of them at once and how you are going to set them.

Happy sewing!

Bet it feels good to have all those blocks made. They look like they might be different sizes (?) so I can't wait to see how they all go together :)
