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.
