Civil War Quilt...progress, getting there!

A little more progress done on my Civil War Quilt...
As you can see, I have it laid out on the floor in the spare bedroom in between the beds, so there's not much room!
I'm fast running out of the cream background fabric... trying so hard to be very careful not to waste an inch!
I'm going to have to make it a little smaller...hopefully I will have enough to make it 80"x 92", that will still be a big enough topper for our queen size bed.
I'm loving how it's turning out, but all those points to match, I'm being ever so careful to get them exact


This is the cream fabric I bought last year and used for the background...fingers crossed I'll just have enough.

For those that have been asking.....This gorgeous quilt that I've been working on is called "The Civil War Quilt" from Patchwork on Stonleigh in Victoria Australia...specialists in antique reproduction fabrics.Unfortunately they don't have a web site that I could share with you...

I'll be sewing today, hope you have a lovely day....♥

  8. Your top is gorgeous! For the size, you might want to take a measurement of your bed because once your top is quilted, your quilt will shrink a couple of inches for both length and width and you might be disappointed and be wanting to kick yourself afterwards.

    I have measured my tops before and after quilting and am always amazed at the decrease in size. With one quilt, I lost 3" because of heavy quilting.

    This would be a good time to introduce another background fabric that closely matches.
