Description

With over 170 photos and an engaging text, this book tells the stories of fourteen extraordinary Civil War quilts and the women who made them. Some of these quilts tell love stories, others relate the determination of women seeking an active role in the war effort, and some of patriotism and creative abilities of people caring about others. All of these quilts tell stories of struggle and survival. In addition, this book contains information for making traditional 19th century bindings and potholder quilts, plus over 45 patterns for making reproduction Civil War era quilts. Also included is information on reproduction fabrics and how to participate in modern soldier-related community service quilting. This book is a must read for any serious quilter, historian, or Civil War enthusiast.
