CIVIL WAR BLOCK IN BOOK!

Did anyone read the Civil War Quilts blog  by Barbara Brackman today?  Well, I got up early as usual and was reading some blogs and CWQ came up with a new post, so I was reading along, and Country Log Cabin was mentioned!!  I looked more closely and there was my block on one of the pages of the book.  Yes, a picture of one of the blocks that I made!  She said that she mailed a free book to each of the people whose block appeared in the book, but I haven't received it yet.  I don't know if she even has my address.

If you scroll down on that blog to the paragraph that starts with "Amazingly enough" my block is in the picture right above that and mine is the block on top.  You can see where I blogged about that block here.

Today we continue on our journey to our designation where Abby will be waiting.
