Today I have been working on a Civil War Sampler quilt. 56 blocks in Civil War reproduction fabrics.
Each block is presented with a little information about the Civil War. Yankees were blue, but only those who swore their loyalty to the Union were True Blue. Mary Lincoln's sister was married to a confederate general, when he was killed, she joined Mary Lincoln, living at the White House. They weren't considered True Blue.
Two similar blocks in the pictures below represent Manassas Junction or the Battle of Bull Run.
For dinner it's hamburgers, patty-melts. Here are the lean patties formed in a zip-loc bag.
