Civil War Quilt - BOW by Barbara Brackman
Most Sundays, was my day for making the BOW, the best part was fossicking around in my CW stash or running to the local patchwork store and having a great time looking through the boxes for the right colour combination for the block.
Originally, I started with the Twelve Oaks Range, but the colours were too heavy. I have used colours, that I am not fond of, but found them necessary at times.
Last night, I sat up to 1.00am stitching the borders and sashings. I am very happy with my colour choice for them. Most of the blocks, have a hint of various shades of brown in them, hence my decision for Hot for Chocolate fabric. My idea was to keep the borders and sashings simple, so the blocks would zing.
A huge thank you to Barbara, Becky, Dustin and Deb, to make this wonderful project happen.
