    I'm still working on my Block of the Month blocks. I have 9 totally done now.....going to keep doing them throughout the year and do extras to make the quilt even larger. :) My Dh had the bright idea since it is a civil war quilt (using civil war fabrics) that I should take each block and outline it with rebel flag material....... I said UM NO! He said-well it's a civil war quilt........ ???? I said well, we'll have to do a different quilt for that dear. Am I the only one that thinks this is crazy????

    I love your blocks so far. But I agree, rebel flag material might be a little too much.

    He can have his rebel flag quilt some day, but not with your pretty fabrics. I think it would clash a bit.

    I love your blocks. The white is perfect. I think the rebel flag fabric would take away from the blocks. Your right......maybe in another quilt.

    The blocks themselves are 12 1/2 then we add the sashing and cut them down to 14 1/2". Mine haven't been cut down yet. I'll post my other ones so you can see if you like. :)

    Your blocks are beautiful! Too beautiful to have distraction from the rebel flag fabric. That could be a whole different quilt in itself.

    Sure will. :) As long as they don't get taken off for some reason.

    You will need one fabric as the four corners- they will be 4 1/2" square. (A)

    You will need 4 different fabrics and they are cut to 2 1/2" wide 6 1/2" long (these are the #1's) and 2 1/2" wide 4 1/2" long (these are the #2's).

    you will connect them all together with the squares (A). So you should name each of your B, C D& E. Then if you want sashing that will be F.

    You will take A and connect D2 on the right side, add B1 on the bottom side.

    You will take A and connect B2 on the bottom and E1 on the left side.

    You will take A and connect C2 on the top and D1 on the right side.

    You will take A and Connect E2 on the right side then add C1 on the top.

    In that order you will connect those in groups of 2 from left to right. This way it will read A, D2, E1, A across the top.

    Then the very bottom will read A, D1, E2, A

    Then you connect those. :) I hope this hasn't been to confusing.

    In my block:
    B is Brown
    C is Blue
    D is Tan
    E is Red

    Maybe you can tell DH that the rebels lost the war. (And so did he.)

    I agree...no Rebel flag patterns!! :-) I like your blocks. A Civil War quilt is in my not-too-distant future! It has been moving up on my list of To Dos for a few months now.
