A Quilt for a Friend

I have been wanting to make a quilt using Civil War reproduction prints left over from my Dear Jane quilt.  This week I started this one, which will be a gift for a friend.  I got this far then decided I did not like the dark background fabric I used in the center star block, so I took it apart and used a lighter background fabric instead.  I like it better!

Today I started working on 9 1/2 inch star blocks that surround this center area.  I need to make 40.  I got 12 done today.  Make progress!


  1. I agree with you Karen. The lighter background is much better.
    Have a nice and productive weekend.
