I am not a fan of Civil War fabrics...but I may have just changed my mind! This is a great quilt, and I love the stars within stars - you got the level of contrast just right so your eye floats over the quilt and doesn't get stuck anywhere. And I have now learned that "flying geese" isn't just when you put the units nose to tail, as I always thought. Cool!
As for your LAer: my theory is that she wants to buy the quilt from you... You'll be rich! Rich, I say!!!
