For this block I was able to select most of my fabric from the grab bags that I purchased here. The fabric I chose to use for the corner blocks came from my stash although I did originally have a different fabric chosen from the grab bags but in the end I liked this option best.
I really want to order more of these grab bags because they contain such a wonderful variety of 1800s type fabrics. They are perfect for me because they really do enhance the fabric that I have in my stash. I will have to wait to save up some funds for them first because the shipping cost is quite high and I won't order until I have enough $$ to buy many bags so that I can really fill up a big box of goodies!
These blocks are wonderful and I am really enjoying making them and there is an added bonus in that it is so interesting to read the blog postings that go along with them. At just one block a month it is really quite easy to keep up with.

I took a photo of the first two blocks together - they are lookin' good!
