The Civil War BOW needs a backing so I can baste and quilt it. Unfortunately, the piece of fabric I thought would work is just a tad small, in both directions. Fortunately, the backing for the Wild and Crazy Kinda quilt was big, very big, so I am stitching the widest bits to two sides of the too small backing. After measuring, there is about 3" or so all the way around, I'll need to be careful when basting, but it should be OK.

After a year of working on these blocks, with the final one received on Saturday, 31 Dec 2011, the quilt top is pieced. It seems like I have been doing nothing but blocks all year (2011), and now the fruits of my labor are several quilt tops all at once, the Churn Dash, the Mill Girls, Christmas Greetings from Elm Creek Manor, and now this one, A Civil War Christmas.
