Civil War Quilt


Our County has their first Civil War reenactment coming up and our shop, Missouri Star Quilt Company decided to make a quilt to donate. So we got to work. Ron loves the Civil War and really wanted to be a part of this. It took awhile to settle on a pattern but we finally did and with a little modification we got started. Ron chose the fabric and colors. He is also responsible for the patterns for the union and confederate soldiers. Our good friend Amy hand appliqued the soldiers and I started piecing. It took some time but we are so pleased with the results. We need to quilt it and we will be ready to go. It goes on display in Kansas City in April. We will also be selling chances on this quilt. So watch the store blog for that info.
