This is week 46 of Barbara Brackman’s Civil War Block of the Week project commemorating the sesquicentennial of the Civil War. Barbara’s blog presents us each week with a new quilt block and a bit of history. The block this week is called Apple Tree which reminds us of a Union marching song about the Confederate President Jefferson Davis.
My Apple Tree block looks more like a cherry tree with cherries in the fabric:
The fabric I am using is Neesha by Sentimental Studios for Moda. Not technically a Civil War reproduction fabric I’ve been really pleased with all the Civil War blocks I’ve made for this project using this fabric.The set of fat quarters I bought many years ago on a whim have really paid off!
Be sure to check out the Civil War BOW Flickr site to see other Apple Trees.
Have a great week, y’all!
