Barbara Brackman's Block of the Month

Barbara Brackman has started a new Block of the Month, on her Civil War blog.

"Threads of Memory" will feature a history lesson from the civil war era as well as a quilt pattern each month. It was my pleasure to stitch blocks for Barbara to use on her blog - so much fun, that I made a second set using fabrics from her newest line of Moda fabric: "Ladies' Album" which will be available in March.

The BoM will feature 12 Star Blocks (no applique). A new block will be posted the LAST Saturday of each month. I hope you will want to sew along, or read along for the interesting history lessons.

As people make their blocks they are posted on a Flickr page  - to see those just click on the photographer on the left side of the blog. It's so much fun to see everyone's block. Barbara's blogs attract quilters from around the world - leaving comments and sharing ideas, as well.

Below are my blocks for January: Portsmouth Star for Ona Judge Staines
