Civil War Chronicles Quilt

I finally put the Civil War Chronicles quilt on our bed.  It was a 2011 block of the month at a local quilt shop.  It took me 2 years to complete the quilt.  I have no idea how many hours when into completing this quilt top.  It measures 108" x 108" and includes a "million" half-square triangles.  (Well it seemed like "a million"!) 

I had it professionally quilted and I love the work Sharon did.

She used lots of feathers and other designs of the era.  The photos don't do a good job of showing the wonderful quilting designs.  I have to admit that the quilt is quite impressive on our king size bed.  I will never attempt anything like this again but I do love the finished quilt.

Pam...your Civil War Quilt is the most beautiful one I've ever seen. What an accomplishment. I do love all those fabrics and have been so tempted many times to begin a collection of them. I've resisted until now. Seeing your quilt has reaffirmed my desire...not need...to make a bed quilt from these fabrics.

The quilting is beautiful, too. Your longarm quilter did a splendid job. I love your Snowman Wall Hanging in the post below, too. Were the Snowmen from a machine embroider/applique program? They are so cute and have such neat themes...each one. Well done!
