Civil War Quilt

This is the Civl War quilt that I pieced and quilted. I had joined a block of the month club from Keepsake Quilting. They sent me a block each month. Of course each month you pieced all the blocks of that design. The border is small blocks. I don't remember how many of those there were, but a lot. I got a really heavy batting. Actually it was too  heavy, but I used it anyway. Just made the quilt heavier and more difficult to manipulate on the hoop quilting frame I use. This quilt has a lot of brown/beige shades of color in it. So I was happy when a square had some green, blue, purple in it. I don't think I will ever attempt a block of the month quilt again. This one came as it should have and had all the fabrics and instructions needed. But another block of the month quilt I did after this one, was purely disgusting, but that is another story.
Love this quilt.

    1. Thank you. I like this quilt very much. I put a thicker batting in it and it will be very warm on cold nights for someone of my kids.

  2. Wow! That must have kept you busy! How cool to do a quilt with such a historical reference to it. Well done!

    1. This quilt was a challenge! But I think that since I only got one block very month or so that made it easier. The quilting of it took some time though. The fabric was a good one to quilt, the needle just flowed in it.
