Today is my first day of blogging. I've been fortunate enough to stumble across a website by Barbara Brackman http://civilwarquilts.blogspot.com/ where where she gives tutorials of quilt blocks along with a little story of history about the civil war. I ran across the website a few months back, but haven't had the time to get to putting together any of the blocks. Today I was finally able to get to the first block, which immediately led me to the 2nd block. I've enjoyed doing these and can't wait to catch up to her latest post today with the 38th block! I have a lot of work ahead for me, but I get to read and enjoy the stories that come along with the blocks. It's quite possibly the most I have ever enjoyed reading about history.
I've posted the pictures of my block below and hope to be able to further my blog as I learn how to use it. Thanks for visiting! :)
