Here are the final blocks I made...
47. Substitute Block: Indian Star
45. Aunt Mary's Favorite
48. Fair Play
49. Substitute Block: Ribbon Star
50. Extra block: Art Square
46. Barrister's Block
I did stray a little bit from the designated blocks. I wanted to add a few blocks that I had found on my Block Tool iPad app, so chose a few blocks every once in awhile and substituted accordingly. When I put this group below, a few blocks seemed to get lost. I may have to make another Fair Play using fabrics that have more contrast.
As for the setting for the finished quilt, I have fallen in love with the setting that was used on the cover of Barbara's "Civil War Sampler."
I love the combination of scrappy sashing and nine patches. You can see a better picture of the full quilt at Barbara's blog HERE. The quilt on the cover was made by Becky Brown and is simply stunning, don't you think? Perhaps I was also influenced just a tad by the nine-patch sashing used in Country Charmer...giggle...
Thankfully, I have no time limit on finishing this quilt because if you take a good look, there are a whole lot of units to put together! I sure have the fabric to do it and I think this will be a wonderful fabric buster for my stash.
'Till next time, it's a great day for quilting!
