Machine pieced; hand quilted

“I’ve always liked the Civil War reproduction fabrics and colors, and enjoy hand quilting. I started the quilt using several Block of the Month packets from Keepsake Quilts named for various Generals’ wives. More blocks were added using reproduction Civil War fabrics, and duplicating the pattern in some of the squares to complete this king-sized sampler quilt. I like the simple lines of the Celtic patterns used in some of the quilting. The original blocks are from the Historic Quilt Series by Quilters Quarters, Inc.”
