Back to School with Pam Kitty: Row 4

We may not be the best in gym class, we may not ace our math tests, but we seem to be passing the Back to School with Pam Kitty class with flying colors! Each month the blocks seem to get cuter and cuter. The bright Pam Kitty Love fabric and the blocks from Barbara Brackman’s Civil War Sampler are a perfect match. Our March homework is due today, and we are ready to present! Each month, Kimberly, Debbie and Pam sew five blocks from Barbara Brackman’s Civil War Sampler, and in a few short months we will have a bright, fun civil war quilt! Be sure to check out Pam’s blog to see her homework! She always makes an A+!

When we started this project, we all figured that procrastination would get the best of us and we would end up in detention. Little did we know that making the blocks is so fun, each month we are looking for extra credit!

Interested in joining our fun sewing project? Just grab some bundles (about three to start) of Pam Kitty Love by Pam Kitty Morning for Lakehouse Dry Goods, Barbara Brackman’s Civil War Sampler Book and start sewing! We even added a little extra FQS fun. Upload your homework/block photos to Flickr each month for a chance to win a $50 gift certificate to our website. For more information about our Back to School with Pam Kitty “class” head here.

The winner of this month’s $50 gift certificate is Jan@sewandsofarm! Email chelsey[at]fatquartershop[dot]com to claim your prize!

Our next due date is April 15th, so come back by the Jolly Jabber and Pam’s blog to see our blocks in row 5!


  1. I have not been able to start this project yet as I have been busy caring for my elderly mom but I just want to make one comment. I wasn't sure if I like the black material with the other colors but after seeing the completed blocks (so far) using black I'm really sold. I especially like those red and black fabrics together…make do one just in those colors! Hope to start on this project in the new few months.

  2. Has anyone looked into the finishing of the project – and how much fabric it will take? I was looking at the finished quilts in the Brackman book – one was plain sashing and simple cornerstone blocks, the other was nine-patch cornerstones and sashing that she said was made "from the left over scrapes of the quilt".
    There is enough fabric left over from the FQ packs to do this???
