Not so Dreadful Y Seams

48 ~ West Virginia
More Y seams in the newest Civil War BOW. Posted on Barbara Brackman's Civil War Blog on Saturday, November 26. Glad to have just made some in a previous block, they were not as dreadful this time. Actually not unlike doing mitered corners. Pretty happy with this newest block as well as three more I finished today...
42 ~ H is for Hospital
H is for Hospital was posted on the Civil War Blog on October 15. Easy except I changed the yellow from the first block I started. Fussy cutting is so much fun and I spend allot of time selecting fabrics for each block.
34 ~ Rosebud
I chose some Poison Greens for Rosebud. Altho not rose colors, I like the block and the fabrics. The Rosebud block was posted on August 20. 
29 ~ Railroad Crossing
Railroad Crossing was posted back on July 16, the first Civil War block I stopped at. It's hard to believe I haven't worked on them since then. I made pretty good headway this holiday weekend. 12 blocks. There are a few more left, pulled and partially cut. A couple of them are applique so they may be an evening project after I get bindings finished.

Next is the 1880s Sampler Quilt.  I plan to work on them in the evenings during the week as I don't have as many different fabrics and colors in that quilt. My worktable is completely covered with my Civil War fabrics right now, all in different little piles sorted by colors. lol Will have to put them away tomorrow morning before I can use my worktable for work/jobs. This week went by way too fast :0(


  1. Great work and lovely fabric choices. Amazing how the whole month of November flew by!

  2. You haven't convinced me to do any Y seams yet. Lol
    Where do you find such great Civil War fabrics?

    See you Thursday...
