This may be my new favorite block. It took a loooong time to make, but I love the end result. I was making it along with another very similar Civil War Diary Quilts block, also with a lot of pieces. I think most of my favorite blocks from this quilt are stripes. I think it's fun to play with the directions!
The fabric was purchased when I went down to LA for the World Baseball Classic at the Sewing Arts Center. It was in a bin of scraps that you purchased by the pound! I love it.
