I have always wanted to do a Civil War quilt. There are a lot of kits out there, blocks of the month or BOM's and reproduction fabrics. I have looked around and finally decided to keep the quilt simple.
I chose Rail Fence for the blocks. Top represents the North, bottom represents the south.
A center block was chosen. This is called Court House Steps. Which represents General Lee's surrender at Appomattox Courthouse.
My next idea is to put Lincoln's Platform Block as the four corners.
