For the Christmas of 2007 I made my friend Anne Nicole a small quilt to hang in her house in Savannah. She has an old fashioned wash stand and I wanted to make a quilt she could hang there or anywhere else in her house that she wanted. I called her oldest and had her measure so I could make something that would fit. I also wanted to learn how to paper piece, so I decided I'd make her some Civil War blocks from the Civil War Diary book. It's an appropriate choice since she immersered herself in the Civil War when she moved to the South. I like a lot of the blocks and most turned out pretty well. I sashed them with a tea dyed/stained muslin and a blue border and backing.
