We are quilting along with Barbara
Brackman's Civil War Quilt 2011.
This is how I decided to make mine.
Fabric A - Blue
2 - 2 7/8" squares
Fabric B - Pink
4 - 6 7/8" x 1 7/8" strips
Fabric C - Green
1 - 6 3/8" square
Fabric D - Floral
1 - 3" fussy cut square backed
with fusible adhesive
Cut Fabric A squares on the diagonal.
Cut 45 degree angles on each
edge of Fabric B strips.
Sew Fabric A and Fabric B units
together and trim edges.
Ooops! I now realize I placed the applique
square incorrectly. Refer to Barbara's site
for the correct placement. Otherwise the
directions are the same. Sorry, but I taught a
full day class today and my brain was fried...
Update: See below for the corrected block.
Adher the fussy cut 3" square to the
Fabric C square and applique by hand
Sew triangles units to opposite edges
of Fabric C square, press seams
to the outside.
Sew remaiming triangle units to
remaining edges of Fabric C and
press seams to the outside.
Square to 8 1/2".

This is the correct way to place the
fussy cut applique piece.
