This quilt of Ann's is a beauty! It's big and has about a million little pieces in it - just thinking about all that piecing makes me a little queasy. But Ann is a precision piecer and does wonderful work. I love the border print she used around the edge.
I'm not usually a fan of civil war reproduction fabrics but I love these fabrics - in fact I realized I had bought the same fabrics for a quilt I started three years ago. This is how far I have gotten on it:

And realized it was HUNDREDS of orb spider webs wet with moisture from the fog and glistening in the sunlight.
It was beautiful, but I wouldn't want to meet the hundreds of spiders that went with them!
