I love the design of the Civil War tutorial quilt you showed. However, I am not a fan of the muted color Civil War quilts. I would love to make this quilt pattern in different colors. Since it is a lot of work and a lot of fabric to purchase, what other types of colors do you think would look good using this pattern? Would it work in batiks? How about small scale retro prints? What size florals would work or not work? Would there be a fat quarter pack that you carry that might work out to make this? I know they use 1/2 yard pieces, so you would need a lot of fat quarters. I will check the part of the tut that showed how much of alternate fabrics to buy.
