Craftsy Block of the Month 2012 »
Type of item: Home Decor
Marcus Brothers Civil War Fabric Fat Quarters
What was your inspiration?
Craftsy BOM but love the Civil War era.
What are you most proud of?
Tryng to use very muted colors because during the Civil War it seemed they of course used what they had. I am hoping using a dark background will work out ok it is a real challenge to get the contrast. We shall see how it comes out. I am going to be making 3 quilts using the block of the month for this coming Christmas as gifts.
What advice would you give someone starting this project?
I think picking your colors so the blocks pop. This is not my usual quilts I am used to doing very bright and bold.
