I’ve been Busy Making My

Nearly Insane Block # 71

Nearly Insane 71 001

Oops that looks a little off – some fudging needed there I think.


  and Block # 34

I enjoyed this one. You can’t beat a nice Star Block.

The background fat 1/4 I bought for $1 at a stall at a show. :-)

And Block # 40

Nearly Insane 40 001

I have also made my Barbara Brackman Blocks.

I usually get into them on Sunday morning when they arrive in my mail box, but when Block 6 arrived I didn’t have time. Before I knew it, it was Saturday, and I thought if I don’t get onto it, the next one would be here, and I would start lagging behind.

So…. I cut my fabric and sewed merrily along, only to find the rows didn’t match or fit. Darn I knew I should have checked what others had done. Its good because all those who get stuck in straight away, seem to iron out any cutting errors. I checked then re cut and Viola a lovely block.

Block 6 - Richmond

Civil War 6 

And Block 7 Log Cabin

Civil War 007

Even this block needed a little caution in the cutting.

Thanks for dropping by

Love your blocks Susanna, yes the Richmond block was a challenge but EQ came to the rescue to work out what each of the 9 segments should measure. I decided to add an extra row for the log cabin myself.
Looking at your lovely blocks I see there are some fabrics that I have used, loved and treasured, some old pieces, you must have a great stash!!!

You've sure been busy. I enjoy your penchant for Civil War/reproduction sorts of prints and designs. I don't go for those myself, perhaps because we see them so often here, but it's fun to see your progress with them. Great work!

Hi Sue! I started my Civil War Diary Quilt at the beginning of the year and I have been blogging about each block as I work on it. Feel free to stop by and visit 'Civil War Saturdays' at

I love your blocks you have done, they are beautiful!
