Civil War Quilts - Block 5


Well, this is block 5 done - Kansas Troubles.

The background fabric is quite orange and vibrant in "real life". It's been a while since I've pieced little tiny triangles, and I'd forgotten just how much a little stretch can throw a whole block out!

Note to self: be very, very careful when piecing tiny pieces on the bias.

This is a beautiful block. The colours are great. I always have trouble with little blocks and need to stretch them just a bit!!!
