Don't ya just love getting new books? I'm such a sucker for a new book. As if I needed any.
But I read about one coming out on Amazon called Civil War Legacies, by Carol Hopkins. I pre-ordered it and couldn't wait to get right into it once it arrived this week (another advantage of NOT being in Barcelona!).
I love this book. It has great quilts, photos and instructions. The blocks are, for the most part, small-ish...4-1/2", which is cute but not within my current plans.
So I resized the block Papa's Birds to 6" and am giving you instructions for that block to add to your sow-a-long pile! It's kind of a bonus block...
Medium: cut (2) 2-1/2" squares (my pink)
Medium: cut (1) 3" squares for hsts, need (2), fin at 2" (pink)
background cut (1) 3" squares for hsts, fin at 2"
Background cut (2) 3" squares for hsts, need (4), fin at 2"
Dark cut (2) 3" squares for hsts, fin at 2" (brown)
Background cut (1) 2-1/2" square
It's almost like a basket. I think it's kind of cute and hope you like it.
Hope you are having a great week.
Bonus block is programmed to post tomorrow morning!! (hint: think STARS)
Love to you all,
