Civil War Quilt-A-Long

I finished my quilt for the Civil War Quilt-a-long.   What a lot of fun this one was to make.  It consists of twenty 4 1/2" squares with a 2 1/4 inch sashing.

After my blocks were made, I made my strips of sashing.  I liked the deep pink reproduction fabric.  It seemed to set all of the blocks off.    

I added a piece to each block, then sewed them together and laid them all out onto the table.  When I liked the placement, I started sewing them together.


Then came the sashing for in between the rows.

They were small, and so neat to work with.

I also added a brown printed boarder.  Then machine quilted in an all over stipple stitch.  Put my binding on and WAH LAH!!   My Civil War quilt is now completed.  

Total size:    37" X 43"

I am now collecting blocks from all the other quilters in our quilt-a-long.  Can't wait to see what all I will get, it is like Christmas opening up the envelopes in the mail.  When I get them all, I am making another quilt.  What fun!!
