Civil War Block of the Week

Hi friends,
finally my Civil War BOW is completed!! Today I added the border and this is the result

Each block is 4 1/2", for a total of 100 blocks. It was great fun waiting for Saturdays, discover the new block, reduce it and try to sew it well. I'm very happy with the result. Now I just need a lovely backing fabric (probably I'll have a look at Zara) and start with the quilting. I still have to make up my decision if handquilt or machinequilt. What do you suggest?
Thanks for visiting and hugs.


  1. Your work is always so neat and accurate. And you have a remarkable ability to stay focused on one project. Some days you are my inspiration.

  2. Congratulations.... your Civil War quilt turned out GORGEOUS! I love the layout you designed for this and the colors are fabulous!

  3. A beautiful quilt! I just finished my blocks and now I am waiting for sashing and border fabric so I can have a finished Civil War Quilt.
