Civil War Quilt

What are you most proud of? That is is so pretty! What advice would you give someone starting this project? Take the class and follow Kaye's instructions. She is amazing. When you are picking colors and fabrics, try and repeat each color about 3 times, like I did with the blue and the rust color. It creates movement and helps pull things together. Again, on the sashings, I tried to coordinate the sashing pieces with the blocks that they surrounded to highlight those blocks.

Kaab asked:
Wow these blocks look amazing!
stearnsdec@cox.net answered:
Thank you! Notice I had 3 blue blocks (the rule of 3 in design) and blue sprinkled around and I tried to coordinate the sashings with the blocks so as not to take away and make it too busy. Carol
