Civil War Tribute BOM 4


So much for completing a block a month in this series.  I'm way behind my goal, but I'm the only one keeping track, I guess.  This month's block, Double Aster, commemorates the battle of Antietam/Sharpsburg which occurred in September of 1862.  The casualties reached the mind-numbing number of 23,000, but the battle had no clear victor.

This block is 18 inches; a 12 inch block is also made in the same pattern.  The block went together quickly, so I'm looking forward to moving on to block 5 - almost halfway done!

  1. I love your block! Is this a BOM that is open to others? I'd be interested in this one!
