Day 4 - Are you blogging today?

This is just the most fun I've had blogging since I started.  Just knowing you are all out there has helped me communicate better.  I hope you are having as much fun as I am.


Today we feature #4 & #5 of the Battle Series.  I'm going to start doubling up the quilts or we won't get through all 12 by the end of the blog. 

Shiloh was designed with my own variation of the Stars Over Tennesee block.  I love how it makes you search for the beginning & ending of the block.  

And I think that the use of the Blockade block represents the battle of New Orleans very well.  I'm also showing you a close-up of a large size New Orleans so you can see the blocks better.  You see if you make 5" blocks you get a small quilt, 10" blocks give you a bed-size quilt.  All of the Battle Series quilts are written that way.  Also the Generals Series we're working on now.
