    Your quilt is gorgeous. I love the Civil War fabrics & plan to make one in the near future

    The blocks are gorgeous - love the colours. Maybe I'll buy EB's book on Amazon, tho I think it' the kind they have trouble mailing.

    Thanks for the peek at your quilt!

    < I did purchase all the rulers that the book suggested. This was my first attempt at following a pattern and I thought it was best being a newbie. I was pleased with the results and the detailed instructions the book has was easy to follow. Eleanor Burns is a great teacher. I like that she is a detail person.

    Blessings to you,

    Thank you Sandi. Guess I have a couple more to go buy then. Her techniques are different from anything I've ever done before and I'm a bit concerned about tackling this but will do it and learn. Everyone says her books are so easy to do.

    You did a great job on all those different blocks! Great fabric choice for the backing. My DH is a civil war buff too. Are you going to hand quilt or machine quilt it? :thumbup: :-D

    Patty,

    This quilt was my first attempt other than a nine patch and friendship star combo in my avatar pic. I loved the challenge and I really enjoyed learning how to make the different blocks. If I could do it, so can you.

    Blessings to you,
    Sandi

    Thank Miss Ditter,
    Right now the quilt top is hanging on one of our living room walls. Hubby decided he wanted it hung there before I could actually put the batting and backing together. I guess that is a good thing as we just booked a space for the Antique/Craft Show here next month. We have used that quilt top as a background behind us. It does draw attention and it has sparked many a conversation during the 'Shows' we have been a part of.
    When it comes time to quilt it, I do think I will machine quilt it.

    Blessings,
    Sandi

    Good for you. You did a great job. I've been quilting off and on for 47 years and my techniques are really out dated to what they are now so we shall see. I will share when it's done in a year or so time. LOL. Being a hand quilter it will take time to complete.

    Very nice. There is a novel with the Underground Railroad theme from the Elm Creek Quilts series by Jennifer Chiavierni. It too brings out the questions of validity to this theory. No conclusions were drawn.

    You did a great job. The colors are nice and bright not drab and dreary like some CW fabrics.

    Its a real beauty I love it Dera - you did a wonderful job. I like your DH adore anything CW related.

    I purchased E Burns book about 2 years ago & still haven't attempted to make any of the blocks, however I did do the Pioneer BOM here on the board about 12 months ago. I am now in the process of pulling it all together with borders & sashings.
    If you want to see a pictures of all of my blocks just give me a nudge.

    That's beautiful. I have mine Underground Railroad cut out, but haven't got any further than that. Waiting for the long cold winter to sit down and piece it together.

    Tisha,
    I love your blocks.
    The colors you chose blended well all the way around, so vintage looking.

    Yup, I will be doing a Sampler quilt this Winter.
    I have enough in my stash to probably make two. lol
    Like the rest of us do, more stash than time to use it all up.

    Blessings to you,
    Sandi

    You've got me in fits in relation to having far too much fabric than time. I am like that with all of my books & yet I still buy more !!!!

    So pleased you approve of my blocks I have a beautiful mid brown star fabric to use around each block & then a green & beige fabric for the sashing both CW of course- wish me luck

    You won't need luck. You are blessed with talent and I am looking forward to seeing the finished top. Your color choice sounds like a great blending once again for bordering the blocks and the sashing.
    Happy sewing.
