Play with Color and Value for Your Own Special Version!

Subdued fabrics with the flavor of the Civil War era create a stunning quilt. The rustic coloring is just right for a homey quilt and works beautifully with the traditional block. This beauty has a warm and cozy feel that you’ll enjoy all year long.

Notice that one block in two versions creates the overall design. The values are simply reversed for blocks with light centers and others with dark in the middle.

Circa 1852 Quilt Pattern

Of course, the quilt will be charming given a different personality. Brighter fabrics will give it a more modern appeal. Play with color and value to create your own stunning version.

The finished quilt, from designer Debra Finan, is 72″ x 84″.

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!
