    Civil War Quilt Top I Just Finished Last Night

    I finished the Civil War quilt top last night.It’s huge!I could only put ˝ of it up on my design wall at 1 time and when I putup the 2nd ˝ I held up the 1st ˝ to it to make sure Ididn’t get 2 matching blocks next to each other.Well, between that time and when I actuallygot the blocks sewn together some of them fell off the wall and I didn’t holdup the 1st ˝ again and wouldn’t you know it 2 blocks are next toeach other that are the same fabric!It’sright in the center of the quilt top and several people have said it looks fineor that they can’t find the problem sooo I think I may claim creative licenseand leave it as is…we’ll see what DH says when he gets home tonight since he’ssort of claimed we keep this one.

    didn't know that was civil war. I always thought the colors were so drab. Your's is bright and pretty
    and I love it. any your inspector looks lovely on it.
    put off till tomorrow what you can do today, and if you procrastinate long enough, you may never have to do it.

    Beautiful quilt! Funny how others don't notice what we think is obvious. I did the same thing on my most recent quilt and decided against tearing it apart because I had enough of this particular project. I think if we don't point things out, they are not easily noticed.

    I wasn't sure if it would be noticeable or if people just wouldn't point it out trying to be nice...lol.

    Looks great! You have several pairs of similar color fabrics next to each other so it all looks planned.

    I think your quilt is beautiful and they are right in the middle. Since youre keeping it for yourselves embroider your names or wedding date or something on those 2 blocks.

    who says two like fabrics can't be together? No one else other than a quilter would even spot that.

    Lovely quilt and with so many colors, I'm not sure I would have seen the blocks without you pointing it out.

    Thanks for sharing! I've had the same thing happen and I can assure you that no one notices so let's give a cheer for creative license!

    Lovely! Yes it is on my to do list too. I actually have a stack of blocks already made out of civil War scraps but I made the blocks smaller to use more scraps. I hope mine turns out at least half as nice as yours. What a beautiful quilt top. Be sure to post when it is quilted. Great job!

    looks like they are supposed to be that way -- didn't even notice as i was too busy admiring the red you used as a background, it is a gorgeous RED!

    I was thinking the same thing. Diannia, your quilt is gorgeous. You did a wonderful job on it. Please show it to us when it is quilted.
