Civil War Group

Tomorrow my Civil War Group meets at And Sew It Goes quilt shop, which is located in Savage, MD. I will be working on this little Civil War quilt. I machine quilted it, but it needs more. I tried echo quilting around the hand appliqued border, but it didn't look right so I took it out. What I have decided to do is some meandering stitching by hand. What do you think?
A few weeks ago hubby and I went to the Gettysburg Battlefield in Pennsylvania and spent the day. Fifty-one thousand people lost their lives in that 3 day battle. So sad. I took this photo of a row of cannons.


  1. Awesome quilt, Dawn !!!!! And how appropiate to put a photo of the cannons from the battlefield too. I would love to visit Gettysburg.

  2. What a lovely quilt - you did a wonderful job! And the extra quilting sounds really pretty!


Thank you for visiting my blog today! I hope you had a nice visit and come back soon! Have a great day:)
