Civil War Blocks- Repiecing the Past

Project Description

What are you most proud of? I learned not only how to make the blocks presented in this class, but Kaye gave us tools to take with me, but throughout out quilting life! My abilities were challenged, but with the great instructions given, I met them and I believe I did quite well, if I do say so myself! What advice would you give someone starting this project? Take lots of video notes. Pay close attention to how the cuts and blocks are made and why they are done. When you learn these things, not just blindly following what the instructions say, you can make any quilt you want. You can expand or reduce to make any block you want :) and most of all, ENJOY!

Q&A with MsQuilty

desna asked:
Wonderful quilt top and thanks for the good advice. I have bought this class and have still to commence.
MsQuilty answered:
thanks desna :) I finished it late at night, so I folded it and put away until the next morning when I took it out on my deck to photograph it. I didn't notice how wrinkled it looked until I posted!
Pam NZ asked:
*claps hands* actually I'll give you a standing ovation for this one! Well done, it's gorgeous!
MsQuilty answered:
*takes a bow* Thank you, Pam! :)
NanaJeanFL asked:
Beautiful Ms. Quilty! I'm going to have to take this class!
MsQuilty answered:
Thanks Jean :) it IS one of the more expensive classes offered by craftsy, but it is well worth it! Kaye England is such a great instructor. And she gets right back to you if you have a question. Her approach shows you how to take what you learn and apply it to other projects. I learned soo many tips and inspirations... it is awesome!
