    I am making this for my husband. :D
    He loves all things pertaining to the Civil War.

    I have been inspired by all of you who have done the URR Quilt. :lol:
    This quilt top has been a learning experience for me. :roll:
    I have only sewn a friendship star and a nine-patch block previous to this undertaking.

    I have had many days when I ripped out more than I sewed. :oops:
    I have learned so much in the process. :)

    Hubby helped me choose the fabrics and the backing for this quilt. :D
    He has a good eye for color. I love his choices. :lol:

    I do not know how I will quilt it. :roll:
    Hubby suggested quilt in the ditch.
    I want this quilt to hold up to everyday use.

    Please give me your suggestions and comments.

    Thank you all,
    Sandi

    Your blocks are wonderful! You certainly got a lot of practice making different kind of blocks.l

    The backing fabric is really special, too!

    Lucky husband!

    Your underground rail road is really, really nice. I am sure you are proud of your results. That was a ton of work to make this quilt for him. I enjoy learning new blocks. Did you?

    It is a very nice quilt for hubby. He must be thrilled!!!

    Thank you Joan.
    I appreciate the encouragement.
    Hubby spied the backing at Hancocks when I was looking at the flannel.
    He called me over and said what do you think about this for the back.
    I just smiled and said that's it.

    Thanks Red.
    I am very happy with the results.
    I so enjoy sewing and making things for others.
    I was very excited when the blocks turned out sorta looking like the ones in the pics. Some were smaller and some were larger, but I enjoyed making them all.
    Hubby is very happy. His smile was all I needed to see when I showed him the finished top.

    That's beautiful, and I love how your dh helped pick the fabrics!! That's such a special treasure for both of you.

    For quilting, I don't know. What was the common quilting method of the day in the late 1800s? Surely someone here knows.
