My friend Rachel was the president of our local quilt guild last year, in our guild each year they do a "quilt of the year" Rachel designed this beautiful block of the month quilt. She loves Civil War era fabrics so she made one of her block of the month quilts (yes she made a few of them) from Civil War fabrics.
When she brought it to me she told me that she wanted custom machine quilting but just one design in each block, really, just do whatever I wanted. So, I did, and I had fun with it. I machine quilted a lot of feathers, and I love how it turned out. :)
