I have also finished up my version of the Regimental Stars by Red Crinoline Quilts (formerly Bonnie Blue Quilts).  I love all their patterns.

I used  Cotton Club by Marcus Fabrics for the Set - in triangles.  And I used solid Navy Moda Bella for the sashing. 

When quilting I have a hard time deciding what to do in the set-in triangles on all quilts on point.  But with my Christmas money from my parents I got some new rulers and I had be waiting for the right quilt to try using the Curved Crosshatch ruler.  Not all my arches are perfect.  But I was excited to be able to play with my new ruler.   

I also didn't like to see the cream thread cross over my sashing, so I decided to change to navy for quilting my sashing.  That was a lot a thread changes.  But it was worth it in the end. 
Thanks for letting me share my quilt today. 


  1. Beautiful quilt. The navy sashing really sets it off and frames the blocks well.

  2. It's a beautiful quilt. I really love that curved cross hatching. Can you point me in the right direction - a URL maybe - to buy rulers I can use to do that? Thanks. And yes - all those thread changes were definitely worth it!

  3. What a fine-looking Civil War reproductions quilt! I love seeing the close-up of all the beautiful fabrics, thank you!

  4. I love star pattern quilts and you did a lovely job on the quilt.

  5. Beautiful quilt! Are you going to kit it?
