I am following Barbara Brackman’s Civil War Quilt block of the week commemorating the Sesquicentennial of the Civil War. We are on week 31 and the block this week is Empty Spools.

Fabrics used are in the Neesha line by Sentimental Studios for Moda. I love seeing all the fabric selections made by others following the block of the week on Flickr.
