I tried not to overly obsess over fabric choices finally settling on the ones you see in Block #26, Barbara Frietchie Star from Barbara Brackman’s Civil War Quilt 2011.
I would have made flying geese blocks for the star points rather than the half square triangles called for in the pattern, but I happened to have several of the red and tan combined with the cream with red stars background already made from another week’s block but got rejected for another fabric choice. Can't let anything go to waste.
We are now halfway through 2011 with 26 blocks completed and 26 more to go. And the beat goes on. . . . .
