Roseann's Blocks

Twin Sisters
 
Because we added ten more blocks to the book than are on the blog I asked Roseann Smith to make 8" versions. She used the reproduction fabric line 1862: Battle Hymn that we did earlier this year at Moda.

Courthouse Square
 It's a very somber collection, reflecting the sorrows of the war.

Old Maid's Puzzle
 
Roseanne loves to fussy cut and miter corners.

Sanitary Commission Nine Patch

Sugar Bowl
 
So I said to her, "Let me put those blocks together." She said "Let me see those blocks."
I handed them over. They have been confiscated.
 My theory is she didn't want me messing with her very nice blocks. She has a point. When she gets them together I'll show you.

Those look really beautiful with your fabrics. I still have some left, so plan on making some mini quilts with those. After christmas I will finish the one I made, time to start practicing my free motion.

Stunning blocks & the positioning of that first red fabric is wonderful! Look forward to seeing them together.

A beautiful and moving fabric collection.

These are really delightful and could easily be added to the back. I scattered some random leftover blocks on the back of a quilt once and it really looked cute
