New Year Quilt..progress.

This is the new year's quilt I've been working on...
It's a gorgeous quilt called "The Civil War Quilt" from Patchwork on Stoneleigh in Victoria Australia...specialists in antique reproduction fabrics.
Unfortunately they don't have a web site that I could share with you...

I have really enjoyed working on this quilt...a lot of sewing of small pieces, but really worth all the effort.
I'm going to make it a little smaller than the original, but it should still be a good size for our queen size bed...

I know I shouldn't, but I can't help myself...

Above is another new quilt project I'm starting. I'm joining a Quilt-along organized by Robyn of Daisy Quilts see the button on my sidebar....I will be in good company as Lurline and Christine are doing it too....this should be fun!

I just need to pick my fabrics and get started on it..

Must dash, another hot day coming up....until next time..♥


  1. Julia, your quilt is going to be gorgeous. I love those colors! I checked that book out from my library a long time ago. I think I am going to again. The hexagon quilt along sounds like fun. I was thinking of doing it. Maybe a little later on. Keep up the good work.

  2. I love the Civil War Quilt! The Quilt-a-long quilt...umm...pretty, but too many pieces for me!
    There is a quilt pattern at one of my favorite quilt shops called, "Oh my gosh!" The funny thing is, when I saw all the tiny squares stitched together I said, "Oh my Gosh!" right before I saw the patterns name! Funny!

  3. Looking forward to seeing how you girls go. I do love the look of hexagons, but haven't attempted them yet.

  4. Sounds like lots of fun with good friends.

  5. Your quilt is gorgeous, I've admired this pattern in magazines. Luline suggested I join the hexagon quilt along but I think I'm already overloaded with quilting at the moment so I'll just have to keep track of you guys doing it.

  6. Beautiful Civil War quilt!

    I was SOOOOO tempted to join the hexagon sew along but I've got too much to do. I will love watching your progress!

  7. Hi, Thanks for visiting my blog. Yours are lovely and have a lot of tutorials and designs. Just started blogging about 2 months now. Have a lot to catch up and more to venture.

    Have not start any hexy piece yet for the challenge. Have to run now.


  8. So that is where the stars fit in!! Looking good Julia!
    I look forward to seeing how all your hexagon quilts come along... 8-)
    Happy stitchings!

  9. I have often looked at that pattern when Patchwork on Stoneleigh used to have ads in Australian Patchwork and Quilting and thought I'd love to make it. Are they still open? I haven't seen an ad for the shop for quite some time. I'd love to see if they have a mail order catalogue of their beautiful patterns. Happy stitching,Rowena

  10. WOW.!!!what a Beautiful Quilt..You should be Very Pleased with Yourself...I saw the Hexagon site ...maybe I can join in later in the year...but I am Tempted big Time.

  11. Oh my goodness, I am drooling here! lol I love that civil war quilt. It is absolutely stunning. I think this project is in my very near future!

  12. Your CW quilt is absolutely beautiful. Are you going to hand quilt or maschine quilt it?
    Good luck with the hexagon quilt too. Soooo much work, but I know it's a lot of fun;-)
    Thanks for your nice comments on my blog:o)

  13. I love both the quilts, especially the hexagon quilt. Is there a pattern for it? What size hexagons did you use?
