    Very manageable projects

    Enjoyed the period photos, letters and commentary, as well as the manageable projects. I would have liked the photos to have been labeled, if the name of the sitters was known. Clear and very understandable instructions for creating the projects. As a new quilter, I was pleased at how well I could create these period correct articles.

    Small Quilt Projects

    The Civil War Sewing Circle has a nice variety of information, photos and quilts. There is a nice mix of patterns and history of Civil war era life. There are excerpts from letters written to their loved ones, soldiers and to other quilters. Included is the well known letter from Sullivan Ballou to his wife a week before he died.

    The quilts are inspired by the patterns and fabric from Civil War times. Because of the popularity of the Dear Jane Quilt, we are fortunate to have many reproductions of Civil War fabric to choose from. You won't have any trouble finding just the right fabrics for these projects.

    Most of the quilts are small in size, doll, wall hanging, to cot size, but not full sized quilts. There is also a pattern for a letter pocket with a needle case and a felted topper for a wood keepsake box. I prefer larger quilts, but an experienced quilter could take the patterns and enlarge the size to suit their needs.

    These are basic traditional patterns such as the Shoo-Fly, Ohio Star, One-Patch, and hexagons. There are large color photos of the quilts and good diagrams for cutting and piecing. This is the perfect book for those who like to add history to craft.
