Civil War Quilt-A-Long

Check out my Civil War Quilt so far.  I am doing the quilt called "Alexander Bean Pot".  It is using a common block called  "Kitty Corner" or also known as "Broken Wheel".  

I got some really neat fabric on-line at a few different shops.  I am using all but one.  Just did not quite go with the rest.  (my opinion anyway)

I cut out all my blocks and stacked them up ready to sew, then cut my strips for the sashing and boarder.

The blocks are 4 1/2" square and there are 20 of them.  Most of them are made up of one color, but I did do some variation with a few.

It is really a neat block to make and the sashing, well, it is only 2 1/4" wide.  Made of 9 patch in each corner.

This quilt is so much fun to make......When I get the binding sewn on, I m going to make another out of  the book, only add my own twist to it.

Back to sewing,
