Barbara Brackman has just posted her newest free BOM for this year Westering Women. This link will take you today's first block-the post before it will give more information.
It's about those that traveled west in a covered wagon to Oregon or on to California
Even if I do not end up making the blocks I always enjoy reading all the history that she shares. She usually shares civil war or other subjects so this one seems special to me-especially since I am reading allot about this time period in historical novels and also acutally diaries.
