new quilt pattern

While on vacation, I discovered that DH likes Civil War fabrics.  We stopped at Kindred Spirits in Denmark, WI.  It was the first shop I have been in dedicated solely to CW reproduciton fabrics.  I had no idea there was so much variety!

Well, DH called me over and pointed to a quilt on the wall (I hadn't even looked up at this point, I was looking at the bolts).  He said he liked it- just as it was. No surprise - it had log cabin-like blocks - I learned some time ago that he liked log cabins.  In my short quilting "career" I figured out that I have made over 100 log cabin blocks!

I explained that it would be costly, buying a kit, but he liked it so I said I'd make it.  Well, the staffer couldn't find the kits so a few days later I called and learned that all the kits presold b4 the fabric arrived.  I had written down the pattern name so we went home the route we had intended, not the way we came, and I ordered the pattern.

"In all its glory" is from Cozy Quarters and the sample we saw was the designers own sample.  Now I'm on the lookout for Civil War fabrics.

  1. You may be able to google search for the kit online and then save yourself the expense of collecting countless fat quarters for this project. I recently purchased a civil war kit from Judy Rothermel's store which saved me alot of time and research. Happy Quilting! L
