For our swap we are using 1 1/2 in and 2 1/2 inch fabrics. I think the real size of the circa 1880 quilt, is much smaller.
I couldn't resist the temecula Wednesday block. I cut a 2 inch strip of everything after I cut the swap strips, so it is easy to have these ready to work on as well. I have a large stash, but a small collection of civil war fabrics. So, I have to make my blocks from fabrics I am willing to cut, which narrows my selection a bit. Do you have fabrics you just want to keep as pets? It will get easier to cut I am sure.
