Barbara Brackman’s Civil War Sampler – Week 16 – Tennessee


Here we are, now following the cutting directions for each block on each page, as we go along. If you go back to the cutting directions in the front of the book… your block will turn out much too small…. 6-1/2″!!!! Not good. I did it. It really messed with me!! So, now I’m on the correct path, and the blocks are turning out to be 8-1/2″ like they are supposed to. Whew. Have fun with Tennessee. Not as scrappy as in the book, but I thought we needed a little pink!
