The September meeting of the United Forever Double Block of the Month Club meets today at The Berry Patch. I only got 1 block done this month, but am determined to finish the other one before the October meeting. Of course I just got the block done late last night. The Doc changed one of my meds and its thrown me for a loop so I am not getting as much done right now (hence the late finish, but better late than never I guess).
This months blocks were Remember Me and the Montgomery block. The Remember Me block is based on an excerpt from the Book Days and Events 1860-1865 by Thomas L Livermore. He wrote about his thoughts before the Battle of Antietam.
To me this block represents his families prayers for a safe return while he was gone. I am considering doing another one of these blocks, but with a Star of David in the center rather than a cross to represent my beliefs. I think that would be an interesting block too.
I am really enjoying the fabric I picked for this project. The pink is the focus fabric. I have about 20 FQs of white and black to play with and am always picking up more when I shop. I don't really like reproduction fabric and wanted to modernize this project. I think most of the people in this club are doing the same thing. Its really interesting to see the blocks done in so many different fabrics.
Have you ever done a civil war block or a block of the month club? This is my first and I am really enjoying it.
