I succumbed to this Civil War Tribute BOM subscription two years ago. I was drawn to the blocks in the quilt, especially the center star. Civil War reproduction fabrics are also favorites and I hadn't made a reproduction-style quilt in several years. I knew I might not be able to start the BOM as soon as the monthly block selections began to arrive, but I did promise myself the quilt would not be a forever UFO.
Several months ago I was tidying up my sewing room and laid my hands on the BOM collection. I made up my mind then and there to get the project started. I rationalized I could easily make a block per month, instead of feeling overwhelmed by trying to complete the entire quilt from start to finish as a one-time project.
Sure enough, after an evenings' work, I had the first set of blocks completed!
