    Civil War Quilt Stunning

    I have just finished quilting this Civil War quilt for Elaine a friend who is retired and started quilting. She did a beautiful job on this quilt for a newbie. I tried to do the quilting to go with her theme. It is for her brother, who is still a confederate. So you may notice the Confederate flag on there. I did most of it with designs I bought and designs I drew in myself. The Eagle on a branch is mine along with all the cannons. There are a few others but this quilt is just stunning. I really wanted to keep it for myself but she loved it so had to turn it over to her. I hope you enjoy this beautiful quilt. Elaine would be so happy if you did. Thanks for looking, I so enjoyed doing this quilt.

    Fabric is like money, no matter how much you have it's never enough.

    Elaine made a beautiful quilt top. Your quilting is stunning! The red side would be up on my bed. It should hang at a show, it's a prize winner.
