It is fine and dandy to make quilt blocks. It is really exciting to stitch those blocks into rows. And it is beyond exciting to stitch the rows together! This is my latest block of Civil War Bride. I actually felt more like a home decorator than a quilter. I wanted the carpet to match the tablecloth. I didn't want the accent pieces (the vase, the leaves, the cherries and the apples) to compete with each other!
