Week Eight of the Civil War Blocks
For this week the block is Cotton Boll. The plantations that grew cotton were in the South so following my own rule for fabric choices this needed to be a block made with grey (Confederate)fabrics:
But I wondered if this might be a little, well plain. So a second block was made using my universal background but with blue fabrics as the main features:
My thinking for this quilt was for it to be a scrappy blues and grey one. But at this rate I will be ending up with more than one quilt! This is now the third week when I have made more than one block. With each succeeding week I seem to agonize more over the fabric choices.
