Civil War Blocks 14 & 15...

Nice to be caught up again with my Civil War blocks... nice easy ones this time.. Block # 15...Fort Sumter on the left and Block # 14...The Fox and the Geese on the right...
I also managed to get a few more of the setting blocks pieced and sewn in with the blocks....

Hmm... not too sure about that purple one there..perhaps I just need to do a couple more purple ones to tie in and make this one look like it fits in...

Time for a coffee break...

  2. I really love the setting blocks you are using, I've always wanted to make a quilt using that type of setting, you have inspired me. Congratulations on getting up to date with your CW blocks, I'm playing catch up again, lol.

  3. You've got a good eye for colours so you'll figure out what to do with the purple. Love the setting a lot.

  9. Your CW blocks are looking so good! That setting block really unifies the assorted colors and designs. Is it courthouse steps variation? I'm itching to get my blocks on the wall and see how they will do. I've been working from a large assortment of so-called CW fabrics (that I really don't like). I really think a setting block --that I DO like will be needed. But either way, these scrap quilts usually end up being nice.

  10. Your setting blocks look great! I agree, maybe a few more blocks with purple in it, it's a great colour and will add a lot of interest to the overall quilt if it is dotted around.
    I still haven't quite decided on how I will set mine, will have to let the blocks direct me on this one I think LOL! I really enjoyed putting this weeks' block together, it is a great design!

  11. Your blocks all look great. You said these two new ones were easy, but Fort Sumter looks pretty complicated to me!

  12. Wonderful blocks, Julia. I hope to get caught up this week, but I won't hit myself over the head if I don't. It's a hobby, after all.
    I think you have the perfect solution to make your lone purple block feel more at home. You always figure out what to do, whether you have a simple or complex problem.

    I LOVE how your setting blocks frame the main blocks so well. Looking at the layout, we don't focus on the setting blocks. We focus on the CW blocks.
