  • Re: So how is everyone coming on their Civil War Quilts?

    I wish I could say that I am up to speed; but I have bought the material, looked at it and sighed . I have been working so many hours that I really have met myself coming and going. No stitching time. Spring is popping up all over here in Austin... and now the yard has to be rid of winter. Hopefully... in the next month I will have a block or two made

    Thank you.. It seems (by my calculation) the 7.5 yds for the backing is generous. Which is fine. I got the last of the bolt for my backing. I was definitely holding my breath, but i seems that if there was less I still could have made. I was able to the Civil War print with the flags and presidents. So I am pleased. I have plans for any extra. Thank

    Whoo Hoo!!!!! I have chosen my fabric tonight. I have exchanged the mustard bright yellow with cheddar color. I believe this color will produce the same effect. It looks great with the rust, since the rust has a print with the similar color. How blocks are there in the length? I am assuming 7 and 5 wide? Thanks

    Hello: I have been reviewing the fabric requirements and would like to confirm that the yellow, tan, and brown prints (#1-4) are variations of the color. Must the colors be what has been suggested? The reason I am asking is the yellow print is a bit bright. Or does it just look bright on the RJR site and magazine? Any comments will be helpful.
