Just a little quilt finish

This is a recent finish from The Civil War Sewing Circle book by Kathleen Tracy.  I like
the simple little quilts she has in this book.  When bigger projects get too boring or when
I need something quick to make and finish, this book has some good little quilts to work
on.  A fast finish is always satisfying.  It is on page 43, One-Patch Doll Quilt.  Look how
different it looks from the book's photo by using some lighter greens, goldie browns
and a few star prints centered in the nine patch.  A fun little project  and I can set it out
for St. Paddy's Day without it screeming kelly green.  It's good for March decorating.

So lovely! I have the same book but haven't made the quilts yet. You have inspired me to make some soon. I shall be handpeiceing them.

Great little quilt and love the green.
Their are times when you just have to do something quick and Kathleen Tracy's book is filled with inspiration for just that time.

Great little quilt! Refreshing to see stars on a quilt that isn't red, white and blue. Love those greens.
