Civil War Quilt and Irish Chain

Two quilts of mine that I managed to get quilted and bound this weekend.

First my civil war reproduction quilt.  A simple 9 patch block set on point and sashed with cornerstones.  I put on a wide border which I then gently curved and bound with the same fabric.  I do love civil war repro fabrics and I have plenty in my stash.....this quilt hardly made a dent!  I quilted it with an allover pattern called 'come dance with me'.

The second quilt was an Irish chain quilt I made using some red, white and blue fabrics.  Simple to make but a lot of sewing of strips, cutting and re-sewing but it went together quite quickly.  It measures 94" square so is rather large.  I didn't add borders, just the binding in a plain red.  I quilted it with a pattern called 'stars and stripes' which I thought was appropriate for the fabrics I used.

Now, which of my UFO's am I going to finish next...........?

Happy Quilting.



  1. Love the border on your civil war quilt. Both really nice quilts.
