Thread: The Civil War reproductions I've received so far....

    For those interested... here's what I've received so far. These are from Bonnie Blue and the Quilter's Candy Shop. I still have some 1/2 yard pieces coming from Bitter Sweet Primitives.

    I realized today that one piece, a black and red large checked, is missing from the Bonnie Blue order. :( But I emailed them and hope it's sent. Glad I checked!!

    The order still coming has a dark brown, green with blue and red leaves, a light brown, a light blue, a med green, and a brown with blue leaves.... I think it'll need some gold, and maybe another red. The pattern is scrappy with over 60 different fabrics, but mine won't have that many--maybe about 25 tops.

    I keep looking at fat quarter bundles, but there are too many in each I don't want, so I'm sticking to ordering individual fabrics.

    This is a special quilt for my husband, a Civil War fanatic, an expert in every way. He's never been excited about having a quilt of his own--until now. :D I'm trying to make it quite manly looking. :wink: No flowers.

    I sold my sunflower quilt, so the money is going towards this project. I told him it'd be done by Christmas, since I have so much to do already.... but I'm off for the summer in 4 more days...4 more days...4 more days..... :D :D :D :D

    Here's it all together...trying to decide what else I need.

    WooHoo--I just ordered the rest--9 half yards--from Common Threads Quilting. I got three golds, two reds, and several lights with bigger prints.
    And THAT ought to do it. :wink:

    Ahhhhhhhhhhhhhh................

    Your fabrics are so nice. I have a Civil War quilt on my list, but have not started buying fabric for it yet. Can't wait to see your quilt completed.

    Oh yes--come on over. I'm not washing them until they all come--and maybe not until I start to cut them up--just to feel their luxuriously soft newness. :D The golds are due next.

    Hello...new to this, but just had to ask...Are you making a qult pattern from civil war era or another pattern?
    I too have a civil war buff and material but just have not found the right combination of pattern that goes with my fabric!
    I too am right there with all you that I have been reading about...too many patterns, fabrics and not enough time!

    2many--I just learned about all this too. Melissa showed me some sites that had patterns from CW times. I bought mine from Bonnie Blue...I don't have the address handy right now, but if you search it it'll show. :D

    Can't wait to see all the colors together in small pieces. I bet that they look even better than the yardage. Nice selection whatever pattern you choose.

    Karla-I love your fabrics!!! Cannot wait to see the quilt you make from them. I went to the Bonnie Blue website and looked at the patterns. They are gorgeous!! I LOVE the Civil War Tribute quilt and wondered if that is the one you are making???
