Before I get to the blocks I want to show you the antique box I found at a garage sale. I wonder what it was used for.
It looks perfect for storing fat quarters! I don't know if I will use it for that, but it looks perfect.
As I'm sewing blocks together, I'm using pieces from the border of Virginia Bound as leaders and enders. This picture shows an ender and I can cut the thread between and see how my blocks look.
These 3" blocks will be part of the border.
And here are four blocks put together (they are civil war fabric...the cheddar is a Jo Morton Andover). I love how the light colored diamond shapes pop out when you look at it. Or, sometimes the dark colored stars are more noticeable.
I hope I can get it put together this weekend.
