We recently had an airing of the quilts here (future post). So many lovely things resurfaced that I have yet to share with you, including last year’s birthday quilt from Barb.
Somehow it had fallen through the cracks. These photos from last February were on my computer, but I never got around to posting them.
2011 was the 150th anniversary of the start of the American Civil War, which Barb commemorated with this little string quilt.
Look closely at the selvages from which the quilt is made. They’re all reproduction and Civil War lines of fabric.
And see what’s on the back? It’s another Civil War print with cartouches of battle scenes. Thanks, Barb, for another treasure!
