This is my finished Civil War block of the month quilt.  It was a challenge for me due to the center square and then fitting the sections from there out.  The small blocks around the large center each have a battle place and date written in them.  I certainly learned a lot during the process and I absolutely love the long arm quilting.  She did a beautiful job and really brought it to life.  Working with the reproduction prints was interesting too.  I learned that I don't just love batiks and, these prints, with all the history behind them are fasinating and beautiful too.  This is my first sophisticated quilt, and I think I am happy with it.

Kristine, this is a stunning quilt!  I love Civil War fabrics, but that you put bits of history into it is makes it even more interesting.

What a beautiful quilt!  I love the civil war fabrics but have never used them in this size quilt.  I may now have to challenge myself after seeing this:)

Thank you everyone for your kind comments.  I have another reproduction print quilt in the works and hope to finish it by the end of the year.  I better get busy.
