Here are the three blocks  I made that Barbara Brackman chose for her Civil War Quilt book.

#30 Peterson’s Stars and Stripes

Be sure to visit Moonbear Designs’ blog to see the three that were chosen from her Civil War blocks.  I understand that Ellen of American Homestead also had CW blocks chosen.  American Homestead’s blog helped me with many of the block patterns because Ellen often had easier, more precise instructions for making each of the 53 blocks in the quilt.  Thanks Ellen.

Once again . . .
sew very happy

  1. Congratulations Donna! Your blocks are just gorgeous and how proud you must be to have been asked to contribute to Barbara's new publication.

  2. I can see why these three were chosen! Love your fabric selections. Congrats again and it IS such an honor to be chosen. Amazing where something leads us and meeting such a wonderful group of quilters has been the very best part!

  3. They look great and thank you for the compliment.
