A Sampler Quilt to recall the Civil War along the Kansas/Missouri Border. A beautiful array of blocks is set on point in a sampler quilt reminiscent of the Civil War. Using reproduction fabrics that hark back to the 1860s, the color tones of butternut and blue remind us of the uniforms of the soldiers who engaged in battle. This book offers a new perpective on the Civil War with each block dedicated to a woman whose life was touched by the conflict on the Kansas/Missouri border. a few alternative quilts also included for the blocks.
This book makes fascinating reading & in my opinion is too good for a bookshelf – this is a coffee table book.
