    Civil War and 74!

    Just finished this Civil War quilt top. It is a 74th birthday present for my brother-in-law. He is an expert on Civil War history, but not on quilts. I'm adding a legend on the back with the history of each block. The blue looks like a bright blue, but it is navy and the sashing looks light blue, but is dove gray.

    Oh my gosh, this is so beautiful! He will love it, especially since he is a Civil War buff.

    GORGEOUS! He will treasure it and I pray it becomes a family heirloom for 100's of years to come. Great job.
