Barbara Brackman’s Civil War Sampler Block of the Week

DSC07778

Here is Block #7. I have started making little 9 patches, and cutting sashing strips. If you like the version with the triple sashing and 9 patches, you can start now to make those from the left-over fabrics every week. The instructions? I searched and searched the book for them. O my!! They are all included on the Index page! Down at the bottom, right-hand corner of the page. The 9 patch pieces are 1-1/2″ square… the sashing are 8-1/2″ long by 1-1/2″ wide. All our fabric pieces are 9″ wide… so! If you have the full 9″ left-over, you can easily start cutting those. There are 49 little 9-patches in the version shown inside the front cover page. I love it! Deborah S. & Debbie D.
