Journey with the Civil War Diary Quilt Begins

Jan. 25, 1863. Rebecca Lorraine Richmond wrote in her diary:

Yesterday Mr. Pierce received a telegram from George saying, Tom at the Hurricane Hospital, shall I send him home?

Here is my block 92. Telegram from Rosemary Young's book, The Civil War Diary Quilt. I purchased this book about year ago and since that I have bought some ciwil war or reproduction fabrics... Earlier I have sewed only one block, but I think I'm going to redo it...

So my true Journey with CWD begins today.... (with this block - I send warm hugs and greetings to Elin;))) Thank you for all inspiration!!!)

I have thought a sewing order of the blocks... Is it possible to make it more interesting with the way you choose your blocks? I think I have discovered it now... the way which is all right for me... I'll sew the block by the date... because today is Jan. 25... I chosed the block with the diary mark at the same date... (Does it sound too complicated???) But I'm going to sew only 2 or 3 block in the month... and there seems to be more than three markings in February...

By this method my CWD might be a true WISP;)))))

This is so fun!! Now we are making the same quilts: SBS, DJ, CWD, Angel, Noah's Arch....more?
So you choose by date, yes, why not? I hadn't thought about that, I try to make them cronologically, I really don't know how it will turn out.I suppose you are aware of the Yahoo group, there are a lot of tutorials, and there you'll meet the author herself.
I wish you the best of luck with these blocks!
