    Civil War Sampler - lots of pics...

    I had acquired several pizza boxes of blocks. This particular one held sampler blocks made from Civil War repro fabrics. I know very little about these quilts blocks and hope I did justice in this layout. Faced all the normal challenges: blocks different sizes, different quality of stitching, etc. However, someone will be glad to have this quilt somewhere down the road and it's in a much better place outside of the pizza box!

    We did some block specific quilting - for the log cabin, Dresden plate and friendship star we used designs specific to those blocks and then used a collection of 5 or 6 designs for the balance of the blocks. I don't have a pic of the back but we used muslin. Thanks for looking!

    Great job with the placement. An exciting job and great satisfaction with the resulting quilt (out of the pizza box).

    Wonderful! I really like the diagonals created with the Log Cabin blocks!

    You should name this lovely "Out of the Box" and include the story on the label. Really nice quilt.

    What an amazing quilt...especially considering the start of having different sizes to work together! Wonderful!

    What a creative setting. I like how you have grouped the colors...divide and conquer at its best.

    had to come back and take another look at it.
    quilting is great and very complimentary
    put off till tomorrow what you can do today, and if you procrastinate long enough, you may never have to do it.
