North Star

Today, Barbara Brackman released her second block on the Civil War Quilts blog. The block is called North Star. It's been so interesting to read the stories behind the blocks. And Barbara also has a link for Google Books.

Here is my North Star

As I was digging around in bags, and closets looking for the right Civil War fabrics, I thought it might be a very good idea to collect my CW fabrics and organize them together on a shelf.

There may still be a few strays hiding around, but at least I can put my hands on CW and Repro fabrics when I need them.

I hope you have a wonderful weekend. Happy Quilting!

Your block is great, good choice of fabrics IMHO. I'm pulling my fabrics and stashing in a tub so they are easy to keep track of.

Oh, you are ahead of me. I hope to work on block 2 later today. Your pile of fabric looks very happy and eager to be used.
