This is where I left off back in October of 2016.
All the blocks basted together.
Now I have separated all the blocks in the first row
so I can start the potholder method of reconstructing the quilt.
The back of one block with the wool front folded over to
a backing and whipped stitched down.
Only 53 more blocks to go.
Each block will then be hand stitched to each other
in the same fashion as the original Civil War quilt.
These details are all documented by Frances Quinn
of Hoopla Patterns who reproduced the quilt design.
