This is my version of Barbara Brackman’s block of the week #3, Seven Sisters.
I machine appliqued the stars onto the background after fusing them onto the fabric. Easy Peasy.
Also made another Civil War Diary block called Rememberances. Oops, I just noticed I cut off one of the big star points. It will just have to stay that way. It took a couple of hours to paper piece this one.
I currently have 26 blocks completed from Rosemary Youngs’ Civil War Diary Quilt book. That leaves only 99 more blocks to go on that project. That’s 99 6” finished blocks, mostly paper pieced and quite time consuming, but I love them.
Please don’t forget to leave a comment by Monday midnight on my Birthday Month Give Away #2 for a chance to win the Moda Club block cards and project sheets plus a printed copy of the 2011 About.com Quilting Calendar. The drawing will be Tuesday. I’m not even thinking that Ranger the Maine Coon cat will help with the drawing this time since it was totally uninterested in providing assistance on Drawing #1. He's just being a cat.
