    Just a few weeks late. :) Better late than never though, right?

    I bought a yard of the map fabric last spring but had zero clue what to do with it. Looking back I probably should have just used it as backing but too late now. It had Civil War battle maps, Confederate money and flags on it. I cut out each and appliqued them onto the empty blocks in this quilt.

    Oh it's lovely. You have given me a great idea for my brother in law! He loves civil war stuff. Goes to all the battlefields etc. Maybe not a full quilt but a throw? Do guys like throws?
