Blocks Together North and South

Australia Sue took her top out in the yard and photographed it a few weeks ago.


Green grass and green leaves in December? We shivering in the other hemisphere can only sigh.....

Here's a closeup of her setting strips,
which have a triangle on the end
 to make a subtle pinwheel star.
Quite nice and I am pleased to see she used a lot of fabric from the Civil War Reunion collection I did for Moda. I love those bright blues with the red.

And on the other end of the earth

Autumnsbama posted this finished top. (S)he seems to be living in the Northern Hemisphere.

She used a strong paisley to pull her color scheme together and printed her own label block at top left. It looks great in the snow!

Becky has added a sticky note to the Flickr page for finished tops---

And post your tops here. I'll continue to post them here on Saturdays too. I don't want you to be lonesome on Saturdays.

Gorgeous settings on both! Yes, it seems so strange not to have a block posted each Saturday:o)
Slowly doing an appliqued eagle for my center before assembling my (completed - Yeah!) blocks. it will be a while.

Thank you so much, Barbara for offering this project from the heart...and I now have a thick binder with tons of history too!

These are lovely! I was wondering--I hope this is the right place--if you would know if the bow-tie a pattern was used during the Civil War? I have several vintage bow-tie squares that I am wanting to hand stitch together at encampments0. They're of the period correct fabric, but I'm not sure about the pattern.

Sorry for such a long comment.
