    Civil War Journals BOM

    Hi! Is anyone else making this quilt? I started it just last week and I'm looking for buddies. The pattern includes instructions to make a full size quilt or you can make 4 smaller quilts.

    Hi,
    I just started working on blocks from a book I purchased called "The Civil War Diary Quilt" by Rosemary Youngs. There are 121 different blocks. I am struggling with someone of them, I'd rather not paper peice each block. It is a challenge and if I do 1 block at a time I should eventually get them finished.

    I just got last year's Civil War BOM pattern in a garage sale. I think it would be great in a scrappy set of civil war fabrics.

    I was thinking about it, but they amount of money I figured it was costing me was not worth it. I plan on doing a civil war quilt on my own, with a pattern of course.

    Gee, I will try again to reply to your post; the first attempt apparently disappeared into Cyper Space. Yes, I am doing the Civil War Journal and would be happy to compare notes, pictures, hints, etc.,

    Received my first packet of material and read over the instructions; love that it is from the children's point of view.

    Yes, I have only received the first packet. I am making the full sized quilt and may try to do something to make it even a bit bigger. I am making one using the fabrics provided by my quilt shop and I am making a second full sized one using my own Cival War fabrics. I am done making those first 16 blocks - it is a lot of fun and a beautiful quilt. I have never joined a group to make a quilt and this is really a nice change (a bit more expensive than I am used to but I guess I only live once). I'd love to share progress and notes! I am also on the 2012-2013 Dear Jane thread and making two of those at the same time. Needless to say, I am behind on the DJ!

    Yes, please count me in! My first package has arrived but I haven't opened it yet. We are snowbirds and it arrived at home and I am not at home! LOL The second month will have arrived by the time we get home, but I can hardly wait to get my hands on the project.

    I will do my own to. I have some civil war fabric, need some red's but that's it. I think BOM are pricey for my budget and I also enjoy picking out my fabrics. grace
    Create something beautiful from scraps.

    I'm doing both the Civil War Quilt Diary and CW love Diary. I think I have 50 blocks done on one and 75 on the other, doing all scrappy civil war fabrics.

    I am making the Civil War Journal Quilt bom with the KKK's Quilt shop in Hillsboro, Illinois. We cut the middle blocks for the center last week. I could not wait to sew the blocks. Mine are done and I do not get the next part till the middle of February. I'll just have to wait. It will be a beautiful quilt when it is done. I am making the large one.
