3 of my CW blocks to be published!

Block 12 ~ Louisiana

Block 26 ~ Barbara Frietchie Star

Block 50 ~ Grapes of Wrath
I am so excited!!! I received an email from Barbara Brackman asking to include 3 of my Civil War blocks in her upcoming book!!! 
 The three blocks above are the ones Barbara selected. 

She is including blocks from several quilters in our Circle of Friends. 
Two examples of color and fabrics per block pattern.

This absolutely made my day, week... possibly my year! American Homestead and Quilting Bear Gal both posted that they too have blocks selected so I know I'm not dreaming!!! lol pinch! pinch! I imagine a couple of the Australian girls were included, especially Kookaburra calling. Her blocks all included flowers and were gorgeous. Everyone that participated came up with beautiful blocks!

Update: quiltminstrel also has blocks chosen! So modest she doesn't mention it until the very end of her post along with pics of her CW blocks. Lots of eye candy before you get there! Congratulations Merilyn!  Well deserved

I returned my permission form. The biggest decision was whether to use my real name or moonbear. I choose my real name but no one will know it's me! lol

Now it's going to be forever before the book comes out in 2013!!! The book's title will be "Civil War Blocks" by Barbara Brackman.
