Hello, I am Regina from Germany! My husband brought me from California (he visited our daughter) some FQ from the serie "Charleston V". When I found your blog today at once I thought: that's it! The first block is nearly ready! I think it is a great idea from you, thank you!
Much love from Regina

I finished my block this morning, looking forward to the next one. Thank you so much for sharing your blocks and Civil War history with all of us.

AnneElizablog said...

Thank you, Barbara. I knew I wanted to make something to commemorate the Civil War Sesquicentennial and this is perfect. I made the first block and posted it on my blog.

terry said...

Wasn't going to start anything new untill ufos started shrinking. But love your civil war narration and of course I had to join. Have already done the first block and am looking forward to the next. Don't know if I'm going to mix up colors or stick with my first block palette which is madder browns. Will wait to decide. Thanks for your gift.

I bought some fabric during an end-of-bolt sale thinking I would do some type of sampler. The fabrics are not reproduction/Civil War, but it will be a fun challenge to do 52 blocks over the year. Thanks!

Here's my post on my block:

Thank you for this new blog. It is a great opportunity for me to learn some American history.
I love seeing all the blocks everyone has made so far.
I made my block a couple of days ago and there is a photo on my blog. I have used The Morris Workshop fabrics for my block.

I am not a quilter, but I have the greatest admiration of the craft! I am an avid reader of history and will continue to follow your blog to acquire more Civil War stories and admire the quitling!

Xina said...

Thank you so much for doing this! I've done BOMs in the past but was so bored...I think a BOW will be FUN!! I've made my first block...although not in civil war prints...but from my stash...need to bust that stash down! :) Either this quilt will be a stunning quilt or an ugly one! ha! Husband said he would take an ugly one since there aren't ugly quilts out there. :) Again, thank you!

Wonky Girl said...

This will be so wonderfully fun and I'll try to keep up. Wish there was a place for everyone to put their block pics, I love seeing fabrics others are using.
Thank you for sharing the history stories, really like that part too.

Jayne said...

Found you earlier in the week. Have mentioned and linked you in my blog. Have made 2 blocks - one by hand, one by machine. This looks like it will be a fun little quilt-along! Thanks for all you do to make the history come to life! I love it! Jayne

Satu said...

This is a wonderful blog! Thank you, Barbara. I will follow regularly and try to sew some of the blocks too! My first one (I minimized it little, it's 61/2") is ready now and I'll put the photo of it to my blog. Winter greetings from Finland!

Kate said...

Block #1 is done- off to make Block #2. Thanks Barbara for a fun project!
I put my block on my blog here: http://katenlibby.blogspot.com/

Rose said...

I have also made Block #1 and I'm doing Block #2 today. I have some material that I have been hoarding for a long time that will work out well in this project. BTW, this is first internet block project that I have joined. Only wish I knew how to post pictures.

francissmith1791 said...

What a wonderful blog. I found it by researching Columbia. Thank you for posting the fabric with the Hail, Columbia music on it! If you have any images of Columbia I would be very grateful if you were to let me know of them. Your Liberty figure is interesting too--could possibly be Columbia, too. I wish you the best in your work and communicating with the public about it! (And as I am rather making a request, please do feel free to delete this comment and reply back channel--or indeed, not reply, as you see fit! I couldn't find an email for you.) All the best, Francis
