Civil War blocks

I must be crazy! I'm making blocks for the Barbara Brackman Civil War quilt, my challenge blocks from Lynne Edwards' sampler book, and now I'm intending to do 'Dear Jane' blocks! How ridiculous is that!
At least the Barbara Brackman blocks aren't too dificult. Here are the next four, taking me up to week 20. The top two were a bit tricky, but the bottom ones were very straightforward.

Here are the blocks I've done so far. I have made a mistake by using white in the basket block and the Jacob's ladder block. I'll have to dip them in tea to tone them in, before I make it up. (Jane said I ought to dye the fabric instead, but since I don't use biological washing powder -eczema in the family - it'll be fine with tea!)

Now I'm off to start my first 'Dear Jane' block (G7). Wish me luck!
