Clear and beautiful day this 7th. Today Brother Patterson J. was out at the town of Franklin Kentucky. While there he saw the dead bodies of two guerrillas; who had been shot by Federal soldiers of Colonel Johnsons company. - A good many man who were acquainted recognize one of the dead bodies to be that of George Milligan who was formerly one of our near neighbors and a bitter enemy to believers. (quote from the book: Rosemary Youngs' The Civil War Diary Quilt)
I also wrote early this morning to my CWDQ journal: a beautiful and relaxing start to this 7th day.
The next CWD block was so easy compared to the previous one. Only squares and HSTs!
CWD block #27. Bitter Enemy
Here's some cutting instructions, if you like to sew it. The block's size is 6 1/2" including 1/4" seam allowance:
- cut 1 blue and 1 brown 4" square to make 3 1/2" HST square
- cut 2 brown and 2 cream 2 1/2" squares to make 2" HST square
- cut 4 brown 2"x 2" squares
The squares for the HSTs are a little bit bigger than needed, but I prefer to trim HST squares after sewing. That's way I get the right size HST squares;o)
If you wonder why I take quotes from Rosemary's book... I do it, because I want to clarify you the name of these CWD blocks.
Now I must hurry to make my morning walk... there is yet clear sky... a bit.
