Modern Civil War sampler

Project Description

What are you most proud of? Most of the points are OK What advice would you give someone starting this project? Piecing of the connectors takes almost as much time as the blocks! I don't know when it will become a quilt as I haven't a clue how I'm going to quilt it - waiting on inspiration?!

What you will need

  • cotton fabrics

Crystalsmom asked:
Your work is beautiful. You do have perfect points. I really love your choice of color. It is very suble but elegant. Collecting fabrics for this one myself. Keep being inspired.

Thanks, Crystalsmom! I have recently discovered how much I like incorporating greys into my quilts.

Your piece is beautiful. The colors that you have chosen really work, it is striking. It will be great to see it after you quilt it. Great Points. Thank you for sharing.
Darns answered:
Thank you, Pamilia! I almost went with more lemon yellow than gold fabrics but found the Robert Kaufman Quilter's Linen in the gold & that was that.
