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!
