I’ve been working on a number of projects that won’t be posted until after Christmas (for obvious reasons). In the meantime, my friend, Teresa, and I have been working on her project: a tribute to her ancestors who fought in the Civil War. Teresa started out making traditional blocks from patterns I had on hand. Then she ran across this great panel with the portraits of Confederate Generals. The evolution began. As she continued working on the traditional blocks, she decided to add a block for each one of her ancestors who fought, and include birth & death dates, as well as their military information. This is the final product. A special label was added to the back.
