Of all of the quilts, I would definitely make this one again.? Of all the quilts I’ve made for mysteries, this is my favorite.? I think the reason I love it so much was that this quilt sold me a scraps.? Before this quilt I did scraps…but this one showed me I loved scraps.
Mine was all Civil War fabrics and it looked good in those.? This quilt is a keeper.? I won’t gift it.
