I'm using little in this post as a diminutive word to express affection. I like these little blocks a lot. If you're thinking little in size, these are small only in comparison to the 9" blocks they'll be paired with as cornerstones.
These will measure 4½" when sewn into Blue and Gray, the quilt I began making a week or two ago. I wish I had a grand selection of Civil War era reds and blues but I haven't. I've purchased a few but I'm also using not-quite-Civil-War-era fabrics. I'm okay with that. Only others who know about reproduction fabrics -- not many in my circle of friends -- will notice.
I need 38 of these blocks for the quilt. I've made 26, so just a few more and I'll have enough.
Does anyone else like seeing a stack of finished blocks? They give me a sense of accomplishment.
I'm linking this post to Finished or Not Friday at Busy Hands Quilts. Thanks for hosting, Myra.
