My Civil War Sampler Block 15 is Apple Tree:
This was another block where I took the name pretty literally – after all, it does look like an apple tree, right? (More or less.)
And I knew I had some apple-print fabric somewhere in one of my dresser drawers…

But beyond that, coordinating prints had to be chosen.
Since my Mom was in town visiting, I asked her to help me pick out the colors. Didn’t we do a nice job selecting them? 🙂

The original story that goes with this block is about hanging Confederate President Jefferson Davis “on a sour apple tree” — but the (proposed) hanging really didn’t inspire me as much as the apple tree itself…
