February Block of the Month - Only 15 more to go!!!!!

This is the February block for the Civil War Chronicles quilt.  I only have 15 more blocks to go!  I spent yesterday and today (not all of it) cutting, sewing, and pressing 128 half-square triangles.  I'm so glad that I had an Accuquilt Go template in the correct size.  I was able to use the same template for all the cutting of this square.  I'm sure I would still be cutting half-square triangles if I hadn't used the Go.

This is a very muted block.  The 16 squares will be sewn into 4 larger blocks that measure 16 1/2".  Eventually they will be joined to last month's center square.  Our chronicle this month featured Lizinka Campbell Ewell.  Her story was quite interesting.  She settled in Tennessee after the Civil War.  I'll post one of the finished larger blocks later this week.
