It's October....

Today is the first day of my challenge to myself to make a block a day from The Civil War Love Letter Book. Each block will finish at 6 inches and I have been trying to make one a week since the beginning of January.
Today I made the block called First and Always. Instead of all the half square triangles I made six flying geese with a 2 inch strip of fabric and then four hst's for the four corners.


  1. Wow! I would have never thought about doing it that way. I was trying to figure out how you did the center, duh! the other two flying geese.

  2. Good thinking....and good work too!

  3. Genius! Eliminate some of those pesky seams! Looks great!
