    Spectacular job! I love this top and yes the border just makes it sing. CW repros are growing on me. I wonder if they will start to wane in poplarity now that the 150th commerative year is over with. It seems more books and patterns and lines keep coming out so I hope they stay as I really like all the quilts I see made with them.

    Two (or more) things... (#1) I, too, LOVE C W fabrics, (#2) I LOVE this quilt & (#3) since you're not sure exactly what to do with it, I'd be happy to have you send it my way. I'm helping you in two ways... you don't have to go to the trouble to re-do your bedroom & your quilt will be loved. I'M KIDDING... but just barely! This is a beautiful quilt & like I said, I love it! Congrats on making such a beauty!

    A gorgeous quilt. Certainly deserving of a redecorating project.

    CW Quilt pattern used: Midnight Garden

    The pattern is by Gerry Robinson and was featured in McCall's Quilting Mar/Apr 2012 issue.

    I obtained the fabrics at a LQS in Columbia State Park, Columbia, CA and had no idea what I'd make with them. The store in Columbia features a wonderful selection of reproduction fabrics.

    Thanks for all the positive feedback from everyone! A CW quilt is worth creating. I acquired a special appreciation for this era having made one. Interesting how this has happened!

    Wow. I recently bought CW fabrics for a man's quilt. This quilt is great. The border fabrics that you used are terrific. I would redo my entire bedroom if this was my quilt. Congratualtions.

    It is beautiful - I agree - I think we all must re-decorate around our new quilts - how fun would that be? Good luck.
