Civil War Diary Signature Block Exchange

These are the blocks received from the Civil War Diary Signature Block Exchange through Rosemary Youngs Yahoo group.  I am getting ready to swap them out and send them back to everyone who participated. Hopefully, the Postal Service is "back to normal" after the Holiday Season!

Here is Rosemary Youngs block...gorgeous! She has written a number of quilting books..."The Civil War Diary Quilt" and "The Civil War Love Letters Quilt" are just two of my favorites from her!

And now back to swapping out these beautiful signature blocks! A quilt made from these will be absolutely spectacular, don't you think?

Actually, this year is THE year that I plan on working on my swapped blocks: siggies X 2 or 3 years, Heart to Heart blocks, Fall (DJ) blocks, Birthday Siggies X 2 years... and I think that's all.

I am on my 2nd civil war quilt and I love the colors..The first one had a story about the women that helped slaves escape,,my DH hand quilted it for me and I love it.It was called Butternut and Blue.
