Seven Sisters


This week's block for Barbara Brackman's Civil War Quilt BOM.  It's based on the first flag of the Confederacy and called "Seven Sisters".  You can read more about that flag, events surrounding it and other quilt patterns inspired by it on Barbara's blog. She also provides links to other sites if you want to investigate further.

I used reverse applique to make my block.  For me that is a really easy way to go.

It is so hard to say "no", but for the moment I keep saying it.

Perfect fabric! Great job on the applique. I am also trying to resist this BOM but I am getting weak.
