This evening I started working on the quilt I posted recently with the vines and hearts. The Civil War fabrics I have are all in 9x11 pieces so I had to figure up how much of each fabric I needed.
I cut 2 strips from 18 different fabrics. Each 2 strips will eventually make 2 blocks so I'll have parts for 36 blocks, 18 of each fabric. I decided to make all of the centers of all of the 9-patch blocks out of 3 purple fabrics. The sashing blocks will all be in the green fabrics. I chose green because they will be all around the edge of the quilt that tie into the green vines.
