In the next thread of this, I will give some tips I found to be helpful when I was making the blocks. Fabric should be of Civil War values. They are more muted, darker colors, with creams and beige, not white. Kansas Trouble, Barn Buggy, Wiliam Morris are a few samples. Google,or post a pic if you are not sure of your selection.
