Barbara Brackman is at it again! And we are all so happy to see the first block in her new Civil War Block of the Month called Threads of Memory. Check out the free pattern on her blog and join in. One of the reasons I love Barbara Brackman’s blog is because each month she ties the block to a bit of interesting history.
The first block is called Portsmouth Star:
Block 1 was not for the faint of heart!
The fabrics I have selected to use in this BOM are from the Peace & Unity collection by Judie Rothermel. These are Civil War reproductions that look perfect for this project:
It is lots of fun to share your blocks on Flickr site dedicated to this BOM and see other versions from some extraordinarily talented quilters. Be sure to check them out!
Have a GREAT weekend, y’all!
