It Will be Wonderful in Modern Colors and Fabrics, Too!
This gorgeous quilt was inspired by quilts made during the Civil War. Reproduction fabrics “represent fabrics available during the first year of the Civil War including men’s clothing, small florals in a repeat pattern, seed bags, and sometimes old uniforms from soldiers who had died.”
The quilt was made as a raffle quilt by the Valley Forge Homestead Quilt Guild and quilted by Jackie from Silver Forest Quilts. Learn more about their beautiful quilt here.
The “1862 Battle Hymn” quilt pattern, by Barbara Brackman for Moda, can take on many personalities. The basic nine-patch block can be colored many ways, giving each variation a whole new look. Learn more about the block and see variations here.
Traditional colors are simply wonderful in the quilt. The following version was quilted by Treasured Memories Quilting and was pieced by Mary. See more of the quilt here.
Play with color and value to make your own rendition. It will be stunning, whether you use modern colors and fabrics or Civil War reproductions.
The pattern produces a quilt that is 64″ x 82″.
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).
