Wow Sharon, it is truly fabulous! It looks like you did white sashing in between the blocks, oh my! I love the colours you have used. It really is a labour of love isn't it. I guess one could do it a block at a time over a long period. I imagine that I would do paper piecing as much as possible and starch the livin' daylights out of the fabrics too! If anybody else wants to have a look at Sharon's quilt here is a direct link:

Rita if you go to my profile there is a picture posted. I made it with Civil War reproduction fabrics and muslin. If you decide you want to make yours with civil war fabrics let me know and I will send you mine. No block is the same with fabric or design. I did use some of the same fabric on the pie shapes. There are also quite a few sites with hints on the different block construction. Now I believe there is a DVD with the pattern, but not sure. I did a lot of paper piecing.

Just saw all the comments on Dear Jane. Rita, you won't go mad, just know it will take you years, not days to finish. Mine took 3 years, but I also had a goal to finish it. I completed it when our son came home from Afghan. but it wasn't quilted. It, for some reason, it a very rewarding quilt to accomplish. Margarita I am so impressed you are on the finish line. I am bragging here, my DJ is in a quilt exhibit at our State Capitol here in Colorado for 10 weeks. Haven't had a chance to go visit her yet but will in September.

It has been a long time, but Dear Jane is all ankered along the sashings, and border triangles.
Now for next step, quilting the blocks. Starting today 8/22/13.
Two blocks done today. (I wonder how long it will take me?)
