B-13


Difficulty of block: easy
Number of pieces: 9
Method used: hand piecing

I almost didn't get my Dear Jane block (Four Corner Press) pieced this week, as a new project seems to have all my attention. I started hand appliqueing the first of twenty blocks from a pattern called The Civil War Bride Quilt. It is an interpretation of a quilt called Bird of Paradise (1858-1863). As I finish each block, I will post it on my main blog, Journey of a Quilter and also on The Civil War Bride blog that Lizzie has started for those interested in making it. So, it looks like Jane and the bride will have to share my reproduction fabric. I hope to have the first block completed in a day or two.

Where did you get your blue central fabric? What fabric line is it? I've not seen this before and it's lovely.

Hi Karen, I am so delighted to see you are working on DJ! I am planning to start one soon. Dear Brenda Papadakis gave me a book in exchange for some fabrics years ago. I feel that I will have to make one for her. I will enjoy reading this blog - Hugs Natima

Ah Karen, it would seem you have 'Civil War' fever - but we are all glad you are continuing with your DJ blocks - it does remind me each week seeing your blocks that I should really consider getting back to my SBS blocks and I may take a leaf out of your book and share them in a separate blog - that way I might get them done.
