Here it is.  Dixie Diary block 3.  I’m loving the pink and brown combination.

Here’s one with the applique center.

Broken Crockery

A 12″ version with a 1″ frame, set on point by Sandi Brothers.  Don’t you love that cute little star?

Check out Barbara Brackman’s Civil War Blog  for more  block information and a little inspiration.

Dixie Diary Block 2

I recently posted the Inspiration Quilt for this block of the month series.  I included the link for block 1.  Here’s block 2 from Barbara Brackman, the first lady of quilt history.  You can applique a heart or star in the center of each block – or not.  It’s a really beautiful quilt and did I mention the patterns are free?
