On the other hand my biggest goal this year is just to do whatever I WANT to do and not the things I feel I MUST do.
So what did I discover today? Barbara Brackman's new blog. I love Civil War fabrics and one of the things I really did WANT to do this year was another sampler quilt using those fabrics. I just hadn't decided if I was going to use some one's pattern, or come up with my own.
So, while I may feel as if I'm caving by starting Barbara's Civil War Quilt BOM, I'm really not. I'm doing exactly what I intended...right?
That's my story and it works for me.
Barbara plans to post a new block every Saturday, for a total of 52 blocks inspired by the Civil War along with stories to accompany the blocks. I think I'm going to love it!
So an hour after finding her blog, here is my first block. It's called "Catch Me If You Can". Be sure and read the story that accompanies it on Barbara's blog
