Like many of you I have been trying to keep up with Barbara Brackman's Civil War block of the week. The last couple of weeks have been a bit crazy with lots of quilting and medical activities so when the block came up on Sunday I thought maybe it would be easier for me to paper-piece this block.
The answer...not so much! Paper-piecing helps keep my points nice and lines even but it does not help with putting the fabric in the right place. oh no, the T's were supposed to be blue! Duhhh...so I ended up with extra pieces and put them together in a slightly different (and easier!) block.
I figure now I have a bonus/mulligan block in case I have to miss a week later on this year!
In other news...What do you think of this fabric stack? So not like me is it! About half of it came from my stash and the other from a trip to Intown Quilters in Decatur, Georgia (part of Atlanta.) Just going into this store makes you happy (a bit dazed, confused and overwhelmed but happy!)
They carry lots and lots of Kaffe along with the other Westminster designers. In the back room are brights and 1930's repros while in the basement are the clearance fabrics. Before the holidays I bought two of the Material Obsession books and have decided to kick the fabric selection in my next quilt up a notch...should be fun!
More on the other places we visited when I get the fabric out of the car...
