    Oops! My message posted before I was finished. Anyway, those are some examples of light neutrals for the CCC blocks.

    QLG - you're in my thoughts and prayers. I'm sure it's a difficult time for you.

    RE: the CCC blocks, you sew a brown/neutral 4 patch and a pink/neutral 4 patch. Cut as usual. Switch the strip units between the two cut 4 patch units.

    Please note that in the second picture the brown and white strip unit on the left needs to be turned.

    The first of Jane's examples for the tone on tone fabric reminds me of kitchen counters and bathroom tiles. :-) Love it! In fact, I'd take any of the three for my kitchen counter! :-p

    I might work on these and see if I get them done in time. I really like Civil War and these blocks are just so pretty.

    The more the merrier is all I can say, more variety makes nicer quilts. I'm not even a civil war fan but am getting "comfy" with these blocks. Thank you ladies....................You can do this Annaquilts, we need more!!! Please please.

    Ditto what Jaba said. The more variety the better. Each set does not have to be the same, either. Can't wait to see all the terrific blocks!

    I need some help here. I have been working almost every day on this swap. I have several blocks made and only one has turned out to be 81/2" square! I finally cut the "next" set 5 3/8" square and still haven't got the exact 81/2". What the heck am I doing wrong? If anybody has had this experience or can offer advice I am more than ready to listen. Please!

    Try starting with a 5 1/4" square to make your four patch. Then cut as per instructions. Then square to 8 1/2" unfinished. Any other questions, please let me know!
