Civil War Reproduction Quilt(?) Wall Hanging(?) Mess!

BEGINNERS: Sometimes, if you have the means to “waste” a little fabric, practice quilts are a great way to learn a pattern and work out all the kinks before you start on a bigger quilt you want to keep or give to loved ones.

June 2002
I bought a magazine entitled “Fat Quarter Quilts”. I found this pattern-don’t remember what it’s called-I thought it looked easy to do and was pretty to look at. So, I ran to the quilt store and bought these Civil War Reproduction fabrics. It didn’t take too terribly long for me to realize that A) Despite the claims of the magazine—there was no way I was going to be able to make a whole quilt from just the few fat quarters I had purchased… and B) It was NOT easy to do. I could NOT get my points to match! The over-all effect turned out nicely though. However, it’s really too big to be a Wall-hanging but way too small to even be a lap quilt. It was good practice though and I really like it.
