Day 11 of Civil War Remembered


This quilt is called “Brother Fought Brother” and if you look carefully you will notice that the star block is set with an alternating snowball block.  Quilt measures 47″ x 55.

I took the picture in the piano room and then decided to take it again so I could show you this tall white cupboard.  It sat in the garage for at least 10 years and was, in most mens’ opinion, ready for the burn pile.  Originally it was a built-in pantry-type cupboard  painted turquoise so admittedly it needed some work but Dawn painted it for me and now it holds all my piano music.  I love it!

    Not only is your cabinet funky-cute, it makes a great quilt rack as well as being good for storing music. It’s a win, win, win………..

    Some of my favorite fall colored fabrics are in this Brother Fought Brother quilt. Love the way the star blocks are set on point with the alternating black snowball blocks. Black always makes the other colors “pop”!!! Waiting for my book to arrive.

    Today’s quilt is beautiful as have all the quilts you’ve shone. Want to make them all. The cupboard is fabulous. I love to save old pieces of furniture and put them to good use. Good for you.
