    I love Barbara Brackman’s work and really enjoy the history she reveals in the quilts she features on her blog. This would be a great book to own.

    I love seeing these Civil War quilts because I love anything vintage-y. This would be a great book! I’d also be tempted to try these patterns in the modern brighter fabrics.

    I have been a fan of Civil War history for a very long time. I have been to Savannah, GA, Charleston, SC, Gettysburg, PA and some of the battlefields inland and have learned so much. I have collected reproduction fabrics (some of which you can’t get anymore) and would love to make a quilt that used some of my fabrics.

    I love all of the old reproduction quilts. Being from the South anything civil war era will catch my eye.

    That quilt is fantastic. I just love all of the older looking fabrics. I am convinced I was born in the wrong era. There is nothing out there that can compare to the civil war reproductions. Thank you for sharing.

    I am a HUGE lover of Civil War quilts, patterns, fabrics, you name it. I am also a big fan of stories and diaries from that period.

    Oh YES! I love civil war repos. And I admire Barbara Brackman’s writing and fabrics, actually I love buying her things. Do not have this book so if you want to add it to my library I will be most appreciative.

    I’m not a lover of Civil War Reproduction fabrics, because I love brighter colors. I do think every one of these blocks would look amazing in batiks, however!

    I do love Civil War reproduction fabrics, especially Barbara Brackman’s Metropolitan Fair.
