Review: Civil War Remembered

CIVIL WAR REMEMBERED

“This is an ideal book for scrap fabric hoarders. The 19 quilts range from a 16½” doll’s quilt to bed quilts, all made in soft muted colours.

The quilts emulate the handmade quilts of the 19th century with very small blocks, some only 2″ square. They need a lot of piecing and secondary patterns often emerge when the blocks are joined together.

There are simple Nine Patch and Pinwheel blocks. One quilt with 16″ string pieced stars would ‘eat up’ many small scraps of fabric. Detailed instructions and diagrams are given for cutting and assembling the blocks.”
