Another small civil war quilt done

This is my third small quilt from The Civil War Sewing Circle book by Kathleen Tracy.  It is my
version of the pink patches doll quilt on page 52.  This is made in faded browns and blues.  It looks
antique-y and actually reminds me of an old wallpaper you might find in the dining room of an old, old house.  Such a fun and quick project once again.  It's a good book and I know a lot of bloggers own
this one as I have seen various finished quilts in blogland.  Now to decide which one to make next
when I need a break from larger projects.

As soon as I saw your quilt, I thought that it does have the antique look of a quilt in that era.

Very nice reproduction quilt. I love the soft blues and browns. THanks for sharing your project - it is nice to see some little projects during the longer ones!

Susie I love the colours you have used. I prefer them to the pinks that are used in the book. I must get onto making some of those quilts soon. You have inspired me. Thankyou.

This looks so old. I thought at first you had used vintage fabrics. Really nice!

I like the blue and brown. I don't think I've seen that stripe you used. It's really nice.
