This week Barbara Brackman’s Civil War Block of the Week is Dixie Tea. I’ve have always known it as the Maple Leaf block. I made a Maple Leaf quilt for my Dad years ago. I hand quilted it which took many many months (if not years). It covered the pool table we had at the time when I wasn’t working on it. This is the only picture I have of it
This week Barbara Brackman’s blog covers the history of using alternatives to coffee and tea during the Civil War – interesting stuff! Be sure to check it out.
Here is my Dixie Tea block done in Fall colors:
The woods behind our house are ablaze with red and yellow leaves which are rapidly falling to the ground! Beautiful season with much to be thankful for!
One of my blessings this week is that I was a lucky winner of one of the door prizes at my guild meeting yesterday! Look at what I won!!!
