Civil War Tribute – Block 10

I haven’t forgotten about this quilt – in fact I am trying to finish it so I can put in on my bed!  Here is Block 10.  The picture doesn’t do justice to the colors – they are more vibrant in person.  When paired with the other blocks, the color palette is gorgeous!

 

Civil War Tribute - Block 10

Overall, this one was pretty straight forward, except for the FOUR set-in seams at the end.  I always wondered why quilters thought set-in seams were so difficult, after making this block, I understand why!  If I were hand piecing this, the set in seams wouldn’t be such a challenge, since you have so much control over what and where you are sewing.

Next up  – the large center medallion (it is 30 inches square).  After taking a look at the directions, it seems like the center medallion should be pretty easy – as far as I can tell there are not set-in seams!!

  2. Heather,

    This is very nice. You are really getting a lot done.

  3. I am currently working on Month 10 of the Civil War Tribute BOM. I cannot get these set in seams right. Do you have any advice or maybe a step by step tutorial how you did it? Any help would be greatly appreciated.
    Thanks so much.

    • Cheryl, I had someone show me, but it just took a lot of practice. I found this Jenny Beyer tutorial on on how to do it – wish I had found this earlier:

      Hope this helps!

        Thanks for the advice. I will look for that video. I think I am going to start on Month 11 and take a break from this block for a little while.
