January Scrap Scramble and Return of the Civil War

Carol Doak’s Scrap Scramble seems not to be just a Block of the Month but a Blocks of the Month!  Yes, this month we had one block but repeated nine times – one large version and 8 smaller versions.  OK, I’m not complaining (really 😉 ), but this took me several days to complete:

JanuaryI’m taking the name scrap quite literally and have tried to choose lots and lots of different 1930’s reproduction fabrics for these stars (and for the entire quilt).  I’ve repeated a few fabrics a few times, but for the most part – they are all different.

Here’s the large block:

January-Large-BlockI’m starting to run out of my reproduction stash!  Sounds like a shopping trip or two are in order!!!

While I’m shopping, I’m also want to select my fabric for the next Barbara Brackman Civil War Block of the Month called Threads of Memory.  This will begin on January 25 on her Civil War Blog!  I want to use Civil War reproductions and will keep you posted on fabric selection and the first block.

And, finally, I want to wish y’all a very Happy New Year!

  2. You certainly do some beautiful work! I noticed that you would like to know of Quilt Stores around Arkansas. I am the newly appointed State Coordinator for Quilts of Valor Foundation. I have some Quilt Shop names I can share with you. Could you send me your email address.

    Also, we are having our 2014 National Block Drive and I would love to send you the block pattern and instructions if you might consider making a block or two for our drive! It’s a National effort and pretty fun one at that! I’m hoping Arkansas sends in some awesome blocks!
