Finally, I am caught up with the Civil War blocks that Barbara Brackman is so generously sharing with all of us bloggers. Richmond, the 6th block, proved to be quite challenging, as it does not lend itself to an 8" block. But with a little help from others who are having the same problems, I was able to get it done. I trimmed the 4-patch to 2 3/8" and was able to come up with a 3 1/8" block. If you are having trouble with this block, go to Flicker on Barbara's website. There is a lot of great discussion going on and wonderful pictures of the blocks.
