I can’t believe this is week 45 of Barbara Brackman’s Civil War Block of the Week! I have quite a nice pile of blocks accumulated and am looking forward to putting them all together. I also can’t wait to see how the other Civil War BOW groupies on the Flickr site bring their collection of blocks together. I am always amazed and inspired by this group!
This week’s block is called Port and Starboard and it commemorates a Union Navy victory in November 1861. Be sure to read Barbara Brackman’s blog for historical insight into this and other Civil War events.
Here is my Port and Starboard:
So many itty bitty triangles in this one! But after my weekend at the Houston International Quilt Festival it was good to get back to the sewing machine!
