"Civil War Cheddar"

I made this quilt for a good friend of mine using Civil War reproduction fabrics. The pattern is a simple one of half-square triangles that uses cheddar colors for one half of the squares and various other blues, greys, rust, browns, and greens for the other half of the squares. I really like Civil War and 1800s reproduction fabrics and am finding that the bulk of my fabric supply is now being populated with it. So look for a lot more quilts of this style in the future. :)

  1. Thanks for the inspiration. As soon as I saw this I knew I had to make it and put all my other projects aside! I used smaller blocks (4") and a dark turquoise blue instead of navy. This is beautiful for fall and I thank you.
