civil war block

I made my first civil war block!! Alarming conditions from the Civil War diaries. I've decided paper piecing wasn't the best choice for this block. I can't get the intersections to lie flat. I need more civil war fabric! I mostly have mediums and darks. Good thing I'm going to Quiltfest tomorrow. I'm soooooo excited! Two days of shopping! Annie and I are leaving at 7am. I'm packed and ready now. Hope I'm able to sleep tonight.

I have all the quilting done on Slice of Summer except for a few of the applique pieces. It's going really fast and I'm pleased with it. I'll post a picture when I get it finished.
