    Quilt top of Civil War fabrics

    The reproduction fabrics in this quilt seemed a bit dull but I like the outcome after all. The border brings it all together. Can't wait to have the LAQ done!
    I wish I had these colors in our bedroom. Once this is done, I don't know what I'll do with it! Repaint the room, put in new flooring and change the decor? Yikes!

    It is a gorgeous quilt. And gorgeous color scheme. It calls for paint, wood, etc., just like you said LOL

    AWESOME! You did a wonderful job. So pretty! Sounds like a paint job would do the trick.

    Not a fan of civil war fabric. But I have to say I love your quilt. May have to stop at a shop on the way to mom's and pick up a few.

    This is one beautiful quilt, you did a fantastic job on piecing it. It would look great in my bedroom: Oak furniture and floors, cream colored walls. Sure hope you can make it work in your bedroom.

    Love the colors and blocks, especially the second picture. Can you tell me the name of that block; the one with the brown star surrounded by blue? Thanks for sharing.

    Love the look of it! And that border fabric is the perfect "frame" for it! Thanks for showing.

    Never regret growing older, its a privilege denied to many.
