Now that my baby is home, I was able to finish up the last two of the 56 blocks for the Civil War quilt.
Block 52: Christmas Wreath (or Star)
Because I was stubborn about not doing the applique blocks, I needed several extras for the 7x8 layout. So... I selected "Scotch Squares" for the final block in honor of all the folks from Scotland who settled in the Sandhills of North Carolina.... some of whom have a descendant who is an Empress!
True to my promise, I used only fabrics I had on hand.... this time raiding my favorite scraps, which as you can imagine were not the largest pieces I have left.
It was a challenge because I didn't have enough to be too choosy. For example the outer four HSTs should use the brown background fabric found in the center square and the four small HSTs... but hey! You do what you gotta do!
Next... on to the borders! I did mention I found another fabric for the borders, yes?
