Civil War Blocks

Last August, my dear friend, Diane Black, passed from this life.  Her family gave me these block kits she had bought at the 2013 Mystery Harvest Shop Hop.  It is a Civil War quilt, which is totally out of my comfort zone.  Of course, I had to make up the blocks. 

Each shop featured its own block.  I have pictured most of them here.  They turned out beautifully.  I can't get the setting triangle and border fabrics because it has been too long, so I'll have to figure some way to set the blocks.
 Each block was a total kit with all the fabrics and complete instructions.  The last block includes a little bit of embroidery and I haven't done that yet.
 This is the first kit quilt I have ever attempted.  I am primarily a scrap quilter.  I will probably use some of these directions to make entire scrappy quilts from the individual blocks.
 I particularly like the red and black block above here.  I think it would make a gorgeous scrappy quilt. 
 Any of them would make a wonderful quilt.  I am sorry that Diane never got to make up these blocks, but glad that I got to do them.
