Civil War Sampler

I'm finally getting around to posting this photo. The breakoff Stickle group I am involved in decided we wanted to make a Civil War sampler. We all chose a block we liked and sent it to the other members. It wasn't necessarily an original block or in the public domain. The block I chose was by Barbara Brackman called North Carolina Lily and Southern Rose. (or something similar) It is the only one that is on point in this quilt. Carol from Canada brought her quilt to one of our get togethers and we were blown away by its beauty! Right away we started planning on making one with original blocks or in the public domain. I use the word "we" lightly. I have mentioned before that in our group we have an awesome designer and another 2 who are whizzes at Electric Quilt. Tomorrow I'll show our original Civil War Sampler.
