Civil War Class


I went to the patchwork apple this morning for my Civil War Class. We have two blocks per month to make. Today was the second class, but I missed the first class because of my retreat to Mannum. So, I am a little behind, but Sara (our teacher) said we (Jean and I) will be able to catch those blocks up later. I managed to finish the first block and will do the second block for homework. I think I am really going to enjoy this class. I am surrounded by wonderful women, Loz, Jean, Deb and Yvonne as classmates and the patchapple's Sara and Jane. I have chosen a red and white palette and so far it's looking gorgeous! The class was lots of fun and I have four weeks to do my homework. The photos below are of my finished block. One without the flash and one with because neither exactly tells the colour story like it is!

My sewing room is still a mess! I still have a bunch of projects close to being finished without really being that close to being finished! I still have dozens of projects floating around in my head, desperately trying to get out! Lots to do! Perhaps I'll start tomorrow!

I'm starting to thing that I work better in a bit of a mess. I'm the same as you, many projects buzzing around in my head, I try and write them down sometimes.

I love that you did mirror colour blocks and then showed them both. What a difference colour placement makes. But they both look fabulous!

Love your block! I bought the Judie Rothermel fabric yesterday, so I know the true colours!

In 2009 I joined a Civil War class at my LQS. We started with 5 blocks per month, but some members finished all the blocks within 8 months...! I guess they had nothing else on hand... LOL!

I love your block Kris. The colour thing with the camera always baffles me too. I can never seem to get a picture true to colour. Look forward to seeing more of your civil war blocks. Dianne.
