Civil War Remembered ~ Block 40

Order Number Eleven


We are quilting along with Barbara
Brackman's Civil War Quilt 2011.


Fabric Requirements:

1 - 8 1/2" square - Gold

Fabric scraps for applique templates
with Heat & Bond applied to the wrong
side.  Trace shapes onto the paper of the
Heat & Bond and cut out, remove paper.
The templates are available in a link from
Barbara's Civil War Blog.


Layout applique shapes on 8 1/2"
square and adhere to fabric following
manufacturer's directions. 


Applique edges as desired.  I used a
hand sewn blanket stitch using 2 ply
embroidery floss.
