Civil War Quilt Challenge



Most of this last weekend has been spent in the garden.There is still lots to do but I made a good dent in getting the weeds out. The temperature has been prefect in that it's not to hot yet.

I forgot to show this sampler quilt a while back, this was part of a Civil War Sampler Quilt Challenge offered at Two Thimbles Quilt Shop. It was on display at the shop until last month. The idea was to use scraps only for the blocks, all the fabric for the blocks was provided. I added the sashing and border from my stash. You can see them all hanging here and the winners here.
I also finished this little quilt with applique, I like to use the freezer paper method. The log cabin blocks are made using scraps from a friends stash. She is down sizing and offered our stitching group some of her fabric. It was fun incorporating her fabric in my project.

Happy Quilting!

I love both quilts. I really love the border on the first one and like the light colored log cabin blocks with the red centers. What a fantastic shop, you are lucky to have that close by.
