An Authentic Civil War Era Palette is Simply Beautiful!
The illusion of interwoven diagonal sashing unifies stars of various colors in this traditional quilt. Reproduction Civil War fabrics give it the patina of a long-treasured antique.
Modern, more vivid fabrics, and even 1930s prints, will be lovely in this pattern, as well. Choose a combination that speaks to you for your own beautiful rendition of a classic design.
While the quilt looks complex, the blocks are set in rows, making it easier to make than you might think.
The fabric line used for this quilt is no longer available, however the “Evelyn’s Homestead” line by Betsy Chutchian for Moda Fabrics contains fabrics with similar colors and print styles. Explore the line here.
The finished quilt, designed by Maria Umhey, is 84 1/2″ x 84 1/2″.
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!
