|Civil War quilt for a manly man|
This quilt is probably one of the most used quilts in the house. I made this for my husband and he uses it every night, and sometimes during the day if he is watching tv or reading. I know what you must think…you use a quilt during the day in Arizona?? Yes. In fact we use the A/C so much, it can get kind of cold. It’s nice!
This quilt was a pattern I got out of a magazine (if you are interested in it let me know and I can tell you were I got it) and once I saw it I knew that was the one for him. It has a nice masculine feel to it. I was supposed to use these Civil War fabrics, but I picked out ones that I thought matched nicely. They were mostly flowery prints with blues, greens, reds and browns for the backgrounds. Overall I still think this quilt turned out pretty nicely.
