#6 and #7

I apologize; my internet was down yesterday & I've just got it back.  Feel like my hands have been tied behind my back.  The only good thing about it has been that I finished a couple small sewing projects.

Anyway here are #6 and #7 of the Battle Series - Antietam and Fredericksburg. 

I designed Antietam to remind me of the old split rail fences that zig-zagged across the open battlefield.  History talks about how the bodies were laying on these fences out in the fieldsafter the battle.  How gross is that . . .

I sure love the quilt though.


In the Fredericksburg quilt I see the hills of the battleground in the dark cornerstone areas & the sunken telegraph road in the sashing.  The twirling blocks depict the armies moving into position. 

If you look closely, you can see the stone wall moving diagonally throughout the quilt. 

Don't forget to leave a comment!  Have a great day!
