Journey through a historic time in American history with Barbara Brackman, bestselling author and quilt historian. Barbara’s book features fifty quilt blocks that commemorate the 150th anniversary of the Civil War. Each block (most were first published in the 1930s) was selected for the symbolism its name lends to recounting stories from the era’s women. This compilation of quilt block patterns includes period photos and first-person accounts. Choose from pieced or appliquéd blocks, each in two colorways with instructions for 8” and 12” sizes. Dig into your reproduction fabrics and enjoy combining blocks to make your own tribute quilt.
