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.
