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.
