Threads of Memory Block 2

A month sure passes by quickly…it is already time for the second block in the Threads of Memory block-of-the-month!  This block features a star within a star, and was a bit more challenging.  I don’t know why, but sawtooth stars are difficult for me.  My star points don’t ever seem to line up with each other like they should!

The history story with this block is interesting as well, about the struggle between those who wanted to help former slaves find a place to settle, and those who refused to let them.  These years were definitely not peaceful times.

Here’s a photo of my finished block:

This project has been lots of fun so far–you should join in!  It doesn’t matter what order you make the blocks in, and they don’t have to be Civil War fabrics either.  Using what you have would make a lovely quilt just the same.

See you next month for block three!
