new block of the month starting in Jan.

Civil War Tribute

Honoring the upcoming 150-year anniversary of the American Civil War.

Create a reproduction quilt that recalls the drama of this significant era. The Civil War Tribute Collection by Judie Rothermel encompasses the historical accuracy and current appeal for which Judie is well known. Highlights include an antique toile-inspired design and a commemorative print denoting key battle locations and leaders, depicting both southern and northern points of view.

 The program runs from January through December, 2010.  

The finished quilt is 100” x 112” so it will fit any size bed—a double-size bed will have enough available to cover the sides of the bed and the quilt will also comfortably fit a king-size bed.

    Somebody stop the madness—-while you’re at it sign me up!!!!! Just to let you know—Jeanine quilted my Home Sweet Home quilt—she did a fantastic job!! It’s up on the wall and will be in the LSQ quilt show this weekend. Saw a picture of this new BOM when I was in the store getting my quilt and binding—-I tried to forget about it but then Wendy talked about it and you know the rest—-it is a beautiful quilt.

    That Civil War quilt looks amazing. Will it be something I’ll be sorry I didn’t do if I don’t sign up? It isn’t like I don’t have other projects to finish!

    Is this a BOM that I will be sorry if I don’t sign up? The fabrics are amazing but it is such a huge project. Is it truly as beautiful as it looks?

    I am so looking forward to your little patterns for the New Year as I am trying to spend more time at the computer and it is fun to combine computer and sewing together. You can have a rest from each one, but know you are getting someting to sew in the future.
    Love, Pat

  10. Dixie Avatar

    Am missing block 1. Subsequent months refer to the cutting and sewing directions in the first month. Can someone help me with the instructions contained in month 1?

      Hi Dixie – Unfortunately that was from a kit subscription project way back from 2009 that has been expired and no longer available since 2010.
