Civil War Sampler #15: Apple Tree

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…

(And, would you believe I am just this very moment as I write this, realizing that it is the EXACT same apple fabric as was used in one of the examples in both Brackman’s blog and the book???)

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? 🙂

Here’s Mom with the finished square:

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…
