Ok! Here's my first block! This one is scrappy, but ideally I would like to make 1) scrappy, 1) civil war fabrics, and 1) 1930's fabrics every month. This is my first, but I will be making the CW and 1930s versions soon.

SBG, Oh! I like the colors of that block. Really rich. And I'm fond of the plaid, in green no less, my favorite color. I'm looking forward to seeing your other color-ways. I guess I have three weeks to decide about making more than one top with this BOM. I'll think about it.

It's nice to find a dedicated thread for this BOM. Great! Here's my January block.

Thanks for sharing about this thread! I have the first block downloaded and just might try to get it done this week (maybe even tomorrow since I will probably be snowed in)...I do have some fabrics in mind and yes a couple are from one of my centers for the new RR. It was fabric I bought when a local quilt shop was going out of biz so I got several in the line...

carriem, I hadn't put away my fabric from doing the Merry Mayhem NYD mystery quilt. So I just incorporated some of it into my block. It was laying there on the table, so I just picked it up and used it. I have a few more scraps, so I'll just leave them on the table for February's block. Am I getting lazy? :-)

Queenbarbiej, Cool! I'm looking forward to seeing your pics!
