Yippee!!!!! I couldn't wait to rip the package open and pour through the book. I just had to make a block right away. I chose to do it with the foundation paper piecing method which was made so much easier because I could print the pattern off the CD. One thing to note about the CD that goes with this book: you must have the Electric Quilt 5 or EQ6 program in order to use it. I am so glad I got the CD. I think this will save lots of time in the end. This is going to be one fun project! I get to work with yummy Civil War reproduction fabrics and I think I will learn a lot about using little bitty pieces of fabric. Some of the blocks I was looking at earlier today have over 60 pieces to them - yikes! I think some blocks may have even more but I was afraid to count them! There are 121 blocks in total. Right now, I plan to make them all, but I reserve the right to change my mind along the way!
All the Way to Wytheville!
