I have two Brackman’s Civil War Quilt blocks to show this time. I didn’t work on last week’s block because I was machine quilting the red and white quilt. Once the quilting project was finished, I began working on the blocks for the Civil War Quilt.
Block #29, Railroad Crossing, has a little problem. It went together beautifully – all the measurements worked – except that it finished a perfect 8 3/4” instead of 8 1/2”. I’ve not decided yet whether to re-make it with slightly larger than a 1/4” seam allowance or just to let it go. I like the way it turned out so if I do remake it, I will use the same fabric choices.

Block No. 30, Peterson’s Star and Stripes was easy to put together because I am machine appliqueing the star. I did, however, have to draft a star in my computer Paint program because the link to the star pattern in the Peterson's Star post sent me somewhere besides a star pattern. Otherwise, this block is a piece of cake.

That’s all for now.
