Barbara Brackman's Civil War Sampler: 50 Quilt Blocks with Stories from History Book

Barbara Brackman --
The Civil War era...chronicled by quilters' hands
This remarkable book features fifty quilt blocks to commemorate the 150th anniversary of the Civil War, some of which were presented on Barbara's blog in 2011. Many of these blocks weren't designed until the 1930s, but Barbara selected each one for the unique symbolism its name lends to recounting stories of the war during the mid-1800s. Dig into those prized reproduction fabrics and enjoy mixing and matching blocks to make your own tribute quilt. Images of sampler quilts are included for inspiration.
