Another Northern Lily/Southern Rose

I finally finished my version of
the Northern Lily/Southern Rose sampler quilt
I designed for my 2011 reproduction line
Civil War Reunion.

I worked with Moda's designer Susan Stiff on this quilt. I drew up the applique patterns...
(Note what the poor woman had to deal with.)

made a model and sent it off to her.
 She made a digital sketch of each block & drew the pattern better in digital form

We decided on an alternate block set with a double
border that made into an 84" square quilt.

Susan also stitched the model that was shown at Quilt Market.

Moda made a pattern package out of it and sold it in
2011 to recall the 150th anniversary of the Civil War's beginning.

So I have just gotten my 9 blocks quilted and bound. Lori Kukuk quilted it on her longarm.
I'm only 6 years behind in finishing things up.

The pattern is way out of print but I noticed that some online retailers still have a few of the Moda paper patterns in stock. Check these out:


I digitized it so you can buy my version at my Etsy Shop:
