I am posting this for my sisters. There is a block of the week going on at the following blog:
http://civilwarquilts.blogspot.com/ Many of us have Civil War fabrics. I thought this might be a fun way to use them. Barbara Brackman is a designer for Moda and designs Civil War fabrics. She will be posting an 8" block every week. She also has directions for setting the block in the side bar of her blog. This year is the Sesquicentennial of the Civil War. That is why Barbara Brackman has offered this pattern on the Internet.
