Westering Women - Independence Square
Barbara Brackman's latest quilt along and I am planning on sticking with this one. ;) Unfortunately, I don't have the best track record but I will try to do better this time.
The first 12" block that was posted is Independence Square and it really wasn't too difficult to make except I made it as a 9" block. I don't why I did that but I did. Regardless, I am quite happy with the way it turned out so I don't want to remake it. Who knows, maybe I can make all of the blocks 9" instead of 12". I do have the option of putting a frame around this one to make it larger if need be.
When I was digging through my stash to choose my fabrics, I found this fabric and I decided to use it as my light background. I don't know if it is period correct but I think these ladies are a perfect choice. I have about .75 of a meter and I am hoping that will be enough.
Barbara will be releasing one block on the last Wednesday of each month throughout this year and along with it she will be providing lots of interesting background information about the life and times of these women.
