    I didn't see any references to it in searching the board. It starts this month so I thought I'd ask. Do tell.

    Here's a link to it:
    http://www.homesteadhearth.com/shop/...oniclesBOM.htm

    I think it's the second BOM of three (correct me if I'm wrong). Last year's was gorgeous. This year's BOM honors the women left behind. Specifically Generals' wives.

    I'm doing this one. I got my center block, but haven't opened it yet. It looks like it could be challenging, but my LQS is having a "tips" session each month to go over construction details.

    I have started this, but I missed the first BOM. Do you know where I could find it?

    Keepsake still has it. I didn't see it at my usual haunts.

    Love the fabrics.

    This blogger posted a pic of the new BOM's first block.

    Homestead Hearth has two other BOMs I like.

    Thank you!!!!. The links and pictures really help.

    I found one similar at Quilter's Cache called Pineapple Star. It's paper pieced, but by drafting & adjusting the star points to be the middle section and setting it on point, I'll have block one.

    I'm doing this one. IT IS a little difficult. I messed up my first block, but there is enough material to do a second one which I'll be starting tonight.

    wow the fabrics look so much lighter than in the pictures I saw , its going to be absolutely beautiful...Did they give you plenty of fabrics or did you have to be super careful? Which shop did you get it from?...I am getting mine from a shop in Kansas..I know the fat Quarter is going to be doing it,,,I am doing the Mystery BOM right now from there and they give tons of extras,,,Yours is sure looking stunning! thanks for showing us,,pls keep posting all the new blocks!

    Daisey - I have run out of fabric so you need to be careful. Got mine from Log Cabin Quilts just outside of Omaha - mail order. Go visit my quilting friends there.

    Anybody still working on this quilt? U started late on it, had to dig down deep to find the courage for So Many half-square triangle? I an now sewing the first three sets together so it looks like The Early Fred 487 picture. Got the fourth month cut out, though. Like to know if anyone else still doing it. Thx.

    Okay, I am really a late starter! I just received my first BOM for the Civil War Chronicles and I am already overwhelmed. Did I bite off more than I can chew? I would consider myself a confident beginner and the instructions are a lot to take in at first. Do any of you have any pointers?
