The Blue and the Gray

I recently bought this book...

I love all the quilts in it and so my friend Janie and I decided to have our own little quilt challenge to make a few of the quilts out of the book.  We both have a stack of lovely Civil war repro fabrics that we want to use so Janie chose the first one which is 'Blue and Gray'

This is my rendition.  It is not a large quilt, only 40" x 48".

I quilted it with a baptist fan pattern.

It is my turn to choose the next one we will make.  Hmmmm choices, choices!!  I'll let you know what I decide.

Now I am going to empty my studio and Hubby and I are going to redecorate it over the next 4 days.  It is 6 years since it was done and it is looking decidedly shabby. A good excuse to have a clear out I guess.

Happy Quilting.



  1. Love that you have someone to challenge you. It's such a good idea and can be the push to get such lovely quilts like this one done. However, until I finish a few of my things I really shouldn't even be thinking about the next project. For today ;)

  2. missing your photos - its been 5 months! - you must have quilted something?
