I have finally made the first cut into the brand new civil war fabrics I bought for my dad's 70th birthday quilt!
I'm always nervous making the first cut into new fabrics, probably because it isn't that often that I get to work with brand new fabrics!
I'm working from the Civil War Diary Quilt book, but unfortunately it isn't a pattern book. So I'm scaling up the blocks to 12", working out the maths and selecting 20 out of the 121 in the book.
Here's the first one, it's called Conscript Law.
Well, that's one down, 19 more to go!!
