Go Scrappy or Plan Around Color Themes!
Whether you love Civil War era quilts or just want to make a cozy homestyle quilt, you’re sure to enjoy this collection. Civil War reproduction fabrics were used in all the examples, giving the traditional patterns an authentic feel.
Every quilt is one we’d like to make. Here are some of our favorites from the 19 quilt patterns in the collection. They’ll provide warm and welcoming touches all through the house.
“Road to Victory”, 47 3/4″ x 59″
“Battle for Glory”, 51″ x 59 1/2″.
“Lady of the Lake”, 38″ x 38″.
“Crossroads”, 30 1/2″ x 30 1/2″.

The collection includes quilts in several sizes and for quilters of all skill levels.
Give any of the quilts a scrappy look, or go for a planned color theme. Modern fabrics will be lovely, too, whether they be brights or muted hues.
The patterns are included in Civil War Remembered – 19 Quilts Using Reproduction Fabrics by Mary Etherington and Connie Tesene. The book is available as a paperback or for Kindle.
PLEASE NOTE: Quilting Digest has featured many patterns from vendors participating in the Craftsy Marketplace, most of which have been deleted by Craftsy. It's going to take awhile for us to hunt down new sources for those patterns. In the meantime there are many links to patterns on our site that no longer work. We apologize if this article contains one or more of those links and appreciate your patience while we straighten things out. Thank you!
PLEASE NOTE: Quilting Digest does not sell or otherwise provide patterns directly. We showcase patterns and projects from various vendors, bloggers and other sources. Please make a note of where you access a pattern (the link in the yellow box toward the end of each Quilting Digest article). That way you can contact Support for that source if you have downloading problems or other issues. Thank you!
