I recently ordered this BOM from Keepsake Quilting because my husband loves this quilt. I was worried about the fabrics included even though I really liked the block patterns. I recieved the kit for month one about a week ago, and I must say the fabrics look much better in person. Still not exactly my favorite colors, but as the quilt is for my husband, who is a bit of a civil war buff, and he likes them just fine, I'm not worried about it any more.
The bit of history that was included with the first kit was very interesting, and I'm already looking forward to getting more kits. I thinks the quilt would look awesome in the fabrics you suggest as well, and I'd suggest getting only the patterns for this quilt to anyone who wasn't sure about the civil war reproduction prints.
