At the beginning of 2011, Barbara Brackman started a blog where she shared block designs and the history of the blocks from the American Civil War era. This was a great opportunity to practice piecing and make blocks I hadn't made before. Civil War fabrics are something I don't have in my stash so, in July 2011, I started making the blocks using only pink fabrics from my stash, so I called it "Not Quite Civil War" because of my fabric choices.
Finished making the blocks around June 2012 and in May 2014 sewed them into a quilt top. I bought fabric for the sashing, backing and binding. Karen quilted the quilt in a pretty flower and heart design for me two weeks ago and the binding was stitched down last week.
I think there are two more tops being quilted then I'm up-to-date. I have plenty of new quilts cut out ready to sew up.
