Quilt historian Barbara Brackman will release a free 8" block pattern each week during the 2011 sesquicentennial year on her new blog Civil War Quilts. Also each week she will tell a true story about persons who lived during that time. As a genealogist and quilter I LOVE the idea and took up needle and thread yesterday to participate. Since I have been hoarding cw reproduction fabrics for a couple of years, now is the time for me to make a dent in the stash. The first block is "Catch Me If You Can" and this is my version of it.
