We're using Barbara Brackman's Civil War Sampler this year and I decided to make 8" blocks. The leaders have chosen three blocks per month, one each for beginner, intermediate and advanced quilters. I settled on Ohio Star, an "intermediate" block from this month's choices and finished it before anyone was stirring.
These are the rest of the fabrics I'm pulling from for these blocks. I found the print on the bottom on sale earlier this month and think it will be perfect for a border.
