Quilts From The Civil War: Nine Projects, Historic Notes, Diary Entries
Quilts and their makers are an integral part of the story about this incredible period of American history. Barbara Brackman offers a rarely discussed perspective from half of those who lived through it - the women of the North and the South.
Included are complete instructions for nine projects, which are adapted from historical quilts and convey an authentic feel. Definitely modern quiltmaking techniques will inspire both faithful reproductions and contemporary adaptations of Civil War era quilts. The book includes tips for using today's reproduction fabrics and suggestions for achieving a period look.
Fascinating photos and excerpts from diaries and letters capture the patriotism and frustration of courageous women on both sides of the conflict.
