I went to a Quilt Guild meeting this week and received the block of the month which is Fort Sumter. I will have to say that I am pleased how it turned out considering this is the first block I have ever made. Each month we are given a block to complete and turn one in and keep one for yourself. By the end of the year you will have enough blocks to make a quilt. How cool is that! All of the blocks are based on the Civil War. The designer is Barbara Brackman.
