This is the first block of the Star Quilt along from www.crazymomquilts.blogspot.com The fabric is from an older Fons and Porter collection from the early 90's. I thought it too "special" to use, but am more realistic these days. It would look better used than in the Rubbermaid box! I like the Civil War look of this fabric and really think that I am going to enjoy this Quilt along! I am using plain old muslin for the background. I think this quilt will definitely look "old" when it is completed. Many thanks to AmandaJean for hosting this quilt along!!
