Civil War Pomegranates Quilt Complete, well the top at least!
So here it is before the applique - all kinds of hideous mint green fabric yelling at you.
Natalia to be machine quilted. Yeah, I know, not period correct, but actually it wasn't unheard of at the time. My friend Sandra Starley, an amazing quilt historian, has a few quilts made in the 1860s and beyond that are machine quilted. Imagine that! Natalia will do an incredible job.
And just some useless information - today I opened the last of my bottled peaches. I had a scrumptious lunch of peaches and cottage cheese! YUM! I guess that means I will have another reason to visit Capitol Reef National Park again this summer and get some peaches and will be bottling up a storm! There is nothing like home-canned peaches! It is funny how many MORE peaches I can fit into a jar than Del Monte can fit into the same sized can!
