Today I snuck away from Aidan and Madagascar 3 to sew this block up quickly. The Civil War Diary Book has chapters on a few men from the Civil War and has a letter sent to them or that they sent home with a corresponding block to go with it. I do believe that is how they 'named' the blocks.
This is called 'Florida has Seceded' and went together quickly along with another two 54-40 or fight blocks from the Celtic Solstice Mystery. I figured I'd make these 24 blocks with the parts I have done and then I'll continue on with step 5. I have eleven of them put together and hope to sneak away back to the sewing room for 10-15 minutes every once in a while and sew up some more. He is snuggly today with a bad sore throat so he stayed home again today. I got a chapter book for him downloaded to my cloud and he is reading that to me while his voice lasts. Time for Chapter 4 of 'Bones and the Big Yellow Mystery'. I think we need to get a more difficult one next time.
