Small quilts this size may have been for cradles or bassinets. Continue reading to see this little quilt's stats:

  1. Nice finish. I didn't start it so I don't have a finish to share this year. Too many other SAL's that I have going.

  2. Great job, Danice! I do love that pieced binding pulling in the fabrics in the blocks!

  3. So darling! Glad you sewed along!

  4. Cute little blocks! The background fabric sets it off so nicely!!!

  5. I love it and you did a great job! The old fashioned prints are always so pretty in a quilt.

  6. Nice job, Danice. I love the scrappiness!

  7. Thank you all for the sweet comments. I was afraid that my little quilt is too scrappy.

  8. Oh I love your quilt, both the fabrics and the name! I am fond of Civil War fabrics and find myself more and more drawn to them. Love the look of pieced binding too. Nice finish!
