Civil War Block 38: Ohio Star


This week's block is the Ohio Star and I knew immediately which fabric I wanted to use for the center.  My Blog-land Angel sent me a gorgeous piece of red floral and I pulled it right out!


I chose smaller floral prints for the other two fabrics but thought the big swirling leaves looked cool in the back ground!

There are only 14 more blocks left... Barbara Brackman's Civil War BOW will be completed at the end of this year.  Assembling the quilt top is scheduled for January...  I'm looking forward to it!

  8. Truly beautiful block. I am also deeply in love with your border fabric (Don't tell my husband but I am tempted to cheat on him with this fabric!) Are you planning to sash the blocks?
