Barbara Brackman’s Civil War Quilt block for week #25 is called Calico Puzzle. After making one block and not liking my fabric selections because of too many larger scale motifs mixed together, I made a second more calm one and am now happy quilter.
This is the one I like
This one is the rejected block
I found that once the block was assembled using the measurements on Brackman’s instructions, I did have to trim 1/4” off of each side to make it the appropriate 8 1/2” unfinished size.
