Civil War Diary Quilt course, reunion

We had a reunion of our Civil War Diary Quilt-class in Haarlem.
M., I. and I are the only ones to make the entire quilt of 121 blocks. The others, though, have much more to show! Some use a dark border:

Others a lighter one (I love this fabric). Here are some very special cornerstones:

I. uses all her brown/beige fabrics for cornerstones:

And here very striking sashings are used:

Most of the group used lighter sashing, these were dyed in a teapot!

And here are two different borders around each block, very special.

Red cornerstones also do the trick.
And then, some are even finished (quilted and all)!!
This one is made by our teacher.

It was so much fun to see all these results, this really is an inspiration to start working on my own blocks again. And thanks to all these different sashings, cornerstones and borders, I now have some idea of what I'd like to do myself. G.
