Today was a great beginning in the quilting world for 2011 free Blocks of the Month.  Kathy over at Humble Quilter sent me a link for a Civil War Block of the Week hosted by Barbara Brackman on her new blog just for the project called CIVIL WAR QUILTS. With the year beginning the anniversay of the 150 since the beginning of the Civil War, what a better time for us to honor and remember it.  Each weeks block comes complete with a history lesson.

With my own Boot Bash this year, I will be hard pressed to do this too, but with my love of history and my Civil War reproduction stash, how can I give this up?  Not on your life.

There is another one that is also in my heart and on my mind and I will let you know tomorrow or the next day if I think I can pull it all together.
