Sometimes it doesn’t matter how carefully I lay out pieces then sew them together, I can easily get myself switched as I did on block #46 Apple Tree, part of Barbara Brackman’s Civil War Quilt 2011 anniversary project. What’s more, I didn’t even see the mix-up until I had taken the picture and uploaded it on the Civil War Quilts 2011 Flickr page. I deleted that one before remembering I should have saved it for a before and after shot for my blog. Let’s just say, my reds were flip-flopped on the bottom left part. An easy fix.


This block looks better set on point in my opinion.


However, I don’t think I’ll be setting my quilt on point. Decisions. Decisions. How AM I going to set my quilt. I don’t know. I’m thinking. Waiting for the light bulb to switch on.



  1. Well it is a lovely block however you decide to set it! I know what you mean about getting mixed up...I do it all the time!!! Careful as I think I am being, it is so easy to do!

  2. I think we all get a bit muddled with block parts at times, I even do it several times on the same block and then I know I need a break.
    I hope the light goes on for you in regards to a setting, sometimes that's the hardest decision.

  3. i does look great on point!

  4. Pretty block!
    Ive seen some quilters setting the blocks w very light sashing and the blocks really pop!
    Looking forward to your decision.


Hey, leave me a comment so I know that I'm not talking to just myself!
