    Welcome to the club! Have done that more times than I want to count. But as mentioned, makes for nice scraps!

    Oh man I tried to make the T block last night I was using a directionally fabric thought I was doing good but 2 of the corner 4.5" blocks are of course opposite direction duhh!! SO back to the stash I think to pick a different fabric. Will need to wash before I can cut so off I go to see what I have in my stash Have the other 2 blocks all made trying to get this done before school starts as I am homeschooling my youngest this year.

    Everyone's blocks are looking so great love all the different color choices everyone made

    I like them Christine and would gladly trade one of my T blocks with you. I make the blocks with mixed fabrics on purpose to give them a scrappy authentic look.

    Thank you. I washed up a couple of fabrics and will see how they turn out. Will most likely keep this one for myself and make new ones for the swap.

    The block looks fine. I don't think CW quilts were directionally precise......

    Frustrated, I like your blocks. Enjoy the homeschooling this coming year! My daughter has homeschooled all her kids, and loved it. I admire her, she is in her element at home and in the classroom.

    Thanks I sure needed to think through the idea of using directionals when doing HST's.

    That can be challenging.....and no....I won't be challening that particular skill in the next swap. I know that I put you out of your comfort zone, but even that would send me near the deep edge!

    Okay, for those that have done this swap, how much yardage did you need for 2 sets & for 3 sets? Just curious.
    Thinking about joining the swap. I wouldn't want to run short on fabric.

    I finished my first set of the Double T's. I used my Triangulations 3.0 disc for the flying geese and they came out great. I wish I could say the same about the centers.

    As I do more of the HST and FG, I find that I don't need the foundations as much. But try as I may, I cannot get the tiny stuff (esp the FG) to ever come out correctly due to size & ironing. The HST's I can make & trim down so that gives me wiggle room, but I haven't found a wiggle/trim technique for FG that is consistent (other than the triangulations).

    This is the first time I've used the 'stacked' FG template. It worked well but her suggested cutting sizes is a little small. If I barely have 1/8" over the sewing lines, the seam is not going to be very stable. So I had to recut quite a bit. But now, when I do the second set (once it's out of time out) I will know the "correct" sizes to cut and hopefully not have to cut it 8 times like this set.

    Here is a blog Barbara Brackman, that is dedicated to Civil War quilts. Since we are getting closer to having our blocks traded it might be fun to take a look and get some ideas on what to do. You can subscribe to it too and get your regular Civil War updates via email.
