    So nice! Did you mark the feathers or just "wing" them? I am trying to learn but have a long way to go.

    beautiful quilt...but have to admit....The Civil War was not part of the Victorian Era..the Civil War was 30 or 35 years before the Victorian Era.

    I want to say I"m sorry for the remark I made. I was under the impression the Victorian Era was from around 1880-1885 until about the turn of the century. I check..should have done that first. Seems Queen Victoria is the one that started the Victorian Era in 1837. Again. I"m sorry. Next time..if there is..I'll check my facts first.

    :lol: no harm no foul. I, like you, thought the CW preceded it as well. It was while researching motifs and designs to use that I realized the CW took place during that time frame (1837-1901) and the well to-do population of the US (both north and south) was heavily influenced by the decorative and fashion trends of that time.

    Beautiful!!! I'm working on this right now - I'm only up to month 7 as I also do lots of charity quilts (I did 5 this month). I have to say it again....BEAUTIFUL!!!!!

    I did not piece this quilt. My friend Meg took this baby on and did a darn good job. I loved this quilt from the moment I laid eyes on it in a photo and seeing it in person was a special treat. I wanted to enhance Megs peicing and make the quilt even more beautiful then it already was with my quilting. I wanted to try and keep the theme of the CW era so I went with elaborate Victorian style feathers (the CW was also the Victorian era!), loads of SID, ruler work cross hatching and a few stencils that kind of reminded me of CW era decorative arts. There is more SID than I have ever done before. Every one of those HST in the border was SID. I got very good at using a ruler with this one! :lol: So without any further babbling on my part... I have 9 pictures to load. I am really looking forward to all of your comments. Thanks!
