This year I am participating in a Block of the Month at The Village Mercantile. I wasn't sure how I would feel about only doing one block each month. Normally when I get on a roll, I want to finish something. We meet on the first Saturday of each month and the starting fee was $5.00. Bring your completed block the next month and you get the next month's block free. It is possible to have all twelve blocks done by the end of the year and you only pay $5.00. So far, I have been able to get my block done each month. These are all Civil War Fabrics.
