Help with a Civil War theme quilt.....
In making the blocks...is there an easy way of making them...meaning...the blocks on most CW quilts are all different so you can't cut enough same size sqs ouf ot the same fabric for all the blocks. Each block is a different pattern with different size sqs and different colors...so.. do you just cut per block and sew it up? Or is there an easier way of making so many different blocks?
anything else you might have to share woud be appreciated. This is for my son for christmas and in the "thinking" stage at the moment. I am currently working on a bargello...but find that if I think about other patterns when I can't sleep at night or while doing something else... I find that my ideas come together better and I figure things out!
I bought the book "Mix and Match Block..50 blocks, 250 projects" and have chosen some blocks I like and will start watching the Joann's sales and pick up "civil war" looking fabrics.
