Making Progress

I've been collecting Civil War fat quarters for a long time now, dreaming of the day when the would all go into a quilt. Well, that day has finally arrived!

yesterday i started counting, sorting, and cutting them all up. At the end of this i hope to have not just one quilt but two.

I'm making the quilt called "Nightfall" designed by Jill Reid for Windham Fabrics. the original quilt is 60 x 60 but i'm adding two more rows to make it 80 inches long (or close to it).

all the fabric in the pic is a part of my Sunday Stash Report this week, and the rest of it will go into next week's report for the second quilt.
Stash report:
fabric in this week: 0
fabric out this week: 8 yards, 24 inches
fabric in for August:18 inches.
fabric out for August:33 yds, 35 inches
fabric in for 2008: 171 yards, 20.5 inches
fabric out for 2008: 184 yards, 4 inches
ahead by: 12 yards, 16.5 inches

Shucks, I have looked everywhere I could think and can't see the Nightfall pattern--do you have a link you could send me?? I am terribly curious, I LOVE civil war repros!
