    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.

    I know he will love it, I love the 30s fabric, it is a wonderful quilt. Hope you show pictures when it is quilted.

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

    You put a lot of detail and work into this, very impressive. Would also like to see a photo of the legend on the back. Did you embroider it or make the label on the computer?

    I haven't made it yet, but since time is growing short (his birthday is in April) I'm sure it will be a computer image! This was a project in my quilting club last year and she gave a short history of each block. My history will be even shorter, maybe just the name of the block and the battle or person that is signified by each of the blocks .
