Civil War Quilt

Time for more reminiscing!

This is another quilt from my 'vault'!

(And I am including it in the Quilt Blogger's Festivall if I can work out the details!)



Photos taken on a beautiful Melbourne Spring day!

This quilt seemed to have everything......

Firstly, my favorite colors (at the time) of pink and green

with a lot of brown thrown in!

And favorite designs like....

Ohio Stars......



Applique.....

(even if it was blanket stitched!)



and Log Cabin.....



And beautiful custom quilting done by Karen in 2008!

Feathers....

 and swirls... 


A friend brought me back the pattern and some fabric from the United States about four years ago.

I think elements of it were based on a civil war quilt.

I hope to one day have a place where I can hang this and really show it off properly!

Have a happy day!

  13. Hi Suz,
    Welcome to blogland- I hope you are getting to meet lots of quilters from around the globe.
    Your quilt is really lovely- I love pink and green together- Your traditional blocks look beautiful and the applique is such a marvelous medallion piece. It really draws your eye in.
