    Just a few weeks late. :) Better late than never though, right?

    I bought a yard of the map fabric last spring but had zero clue what to do with it. Looking back I probably should have just used it as backing but too late now. It had Civil War battle maps, Confederate money and flags on it. I cut out each and appliqued them onto the empty blocks in this quilt.

    Oh it's lovely. You have given me a great idea for my brother in law! He loves civil war stuff. Goes to all the battlefields etc. Maybe not a full quilt but a throw? Do guys like throws?

    I love your fabric choices, they look wonderful together in that pattern! I am always amazed when I see a quilt with so many fabrics that work so well together. The thought of that intimidates me. ;)

    Wonderful quilt, the maps were a very creative thought to use them like that. It turned out wonderful. Hubby must be very happy, getting such a treasure made by you.

    Breaking up this quilt with the maps and memorabilia in the plain blocks is a wonderful idea. It gives this quilt a story to tell..Great for a man's quilt..good job!
