Progress on my Jubilee Quilt!

 After thinking about this project a lot, and have some earnest conversations with myself, I have decided to applique with wool instead of cotton...and I am loving it!  So here are my first two blocks for my Civil War Brides Quilt...I just love this pattern so much!  It is by Karen Mowrey, and the book is called A Bountiful Life.
Let the hand stitching begin!

Have a great day, all!



  1. These blocks are so beautiful, Julie! I love it!

  2. Beautiful! That is a nice pattern - it will be fun to see it done in wool.

  3. I love that quilt and have not seen it in wool!! It's going to be stunning!!

  4. Wow Julie - now that's one quilt I much admire but have decided not to make. So glad you're doing it - I can travel it with you, but stitch it vicariously! Clever you to think of wool applique - looking great!! Meredithe

  5. Wonderful choice. The wool will be sift and lively!
    I've always lived this quilt and it will be fun to follow your progress.
