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?

Here's a pic from this board of the Civil War Tribute BOM completed:

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.
A Mother's Gift

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.

Here's my block! It was a lot of fun to do. This is my first BOM, I'm really looking forward to this process!

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.
