Civil War Blocks

Gorgeous, cold winter day on California's central coast.

Lately I have been playing a bit of catch up. Ms. Brackman issued 9 Birds in the Air this week and I have only completed about half of the blocks yet. Progress was slowed by the irritated nerve in my right arm and the related various appointments and time required for rehabilitation. Well I am now able to get back in the saddle and I have made 7 Log Cabin and 8 Cotton Boll.
I was thrilled to find this fabric in my collection which has a 'cotton boll' feel to it.
I am grateful for these blocks of the week and am enjoying the journey making this quilt to commemorate the sesquicentennial of the Civil War.

Are you making any special item to commemorate an event?

Speaking of events ~ we had snow in the county yesterday. Of course many have snow right now but on the California coast it's not so common. The authorities even had to close a portion of a highway for nearly an hour. No worries though, I was safely inside a warm quilt shop and today is cold but clear, a gorgeous winter day.
