I don't think these pictures do it justice.....as I don't have a place to photograph something this big.......it does look wonderful and the hand quilting added so much to it! That is what kept me going on it, to see the transformation of each block......beautiful!
I have no idea how some of you have done the whole quilt several times over.....you're killing me! I have no desire to do that at all. Been there done that.....ready to do something else! But kuddos to you that have the stamina to do that!
|Note: This picture was taken before the whole top was quilted.|
My goal was to have this quilt totally done sometime during the 150th Anniversary of the Civil War, which meant having it done by April 9, 2015. Civil War Ends .......eye witness accounts for your perusal. I am thrilled to have met that accomplishment. What I personally really love about this quilt, in being able to honor those in our families that fought, North or South, in this conflict. Both the Silver Fox and I have ancestors that represented both sides. I think I inked about 25 names. Did you know that Iowa in the Civil War had the most men serve in proportion to the state's population than any other state? A little trivia for you! But the men from our family did not live in Iowa at the time of the civil war.
G-5 Poof is your challenge for this week.....get to it!
Here we are in all our glory!
Done is better than perfect!
But I think she is just perfect, but I might be a little bit bias! :)
