I finished the Civil War Bride top!!

Ta-da!!!  It all over but the shouting (and the hand quilting, and the binding...).  I'm excited to baste it together tomorrow and get going on the hand quilting.

I did deviate on the borders, but after deviating on other stuff and adding sashing, it seemed normal to me.  It will end up being about 78 x 78 when all is said and done.
Here's the future recipient!!

In stitches,
Teresa  :o)


  1. USt beautiful I am still in awe how fast you made this quilt, lucky daughter!!!!
    happy national quilting day!

  2. Oh Teresa, it's just stunning!!! Your daughter will treasure this heirloom!!

    I love how you left empty spaces in the border, room for some fancy dancy hand quilting :0)


  3. Congratulations!
    I absolutely love your border solution!
    I think I like it better than the original - good for you!
    Oh, you must be so happy and proud!

  4. Yay! for the daughter. I know she is so proud of her mom and her future quilt.
    The borders are just fabulous.
