    I have been working on this for a year. The top is done except for the borders. Going to class this weekend to get border pattern and material. Just had to post because I'm so excited I actually finished it. It isn't perfect but hey this is the most complicated quilt I have made. When I finish and quilt it I will post again. It may be
    awhile.

    FANTASTIC!!!!!! This is my "dream" quilt to do someday. I just love the look of quilts like this. You did an amazing job on the color, design, piecing...everything looks very, very nice! I can see why you're so excited to get it done! Looking forward to seeing it completed!

    Absolutely wonderful! Have been wanting to do a Civil War quilt but don't think I have it in me to tackle anything that complex! You did a fantastic job and have every right to be excited!
