This book contains 19 quilt projects made with reproduction fabric. Each pattern begins with a small paragraph about the quilt, along with the finished quilt and block sizes. The materials and cutting lists are next and then a photo of the finished quilt.

There are lots of graphics to help you make sure you are assembling the blocks properly by what you have been reading. Assembly instructions are clear and the authors have left the final quilting design up to you.

Pinwheels, half-square triangles, stars, hour glass, 4-patch, 9-patch, baskets, flying geese, house, snowball and diamonds are a list of the blocks you will make throughout this book of quilts. If a template is needed, it is provided at full size. The diamond pattern uses inset seams but the graphics and instructions are very helpful in getting this seam correct. And finally, there is a page with a short bio on each author.

The colors used are the dull browns, greys and blacks found in true Civil War quilts. There are a few with a brighter pink but the overall look of these quilts are truly the more muted colors of the time. If you like a particular quilt, there is no reason you couldn’t use a different colorway. After all, it’s your quilt!

All you civil war quilt lovers this book is for you, but, different choices of fabrics can also be used. These patterns lend themselves to using your scraps and work well with Thimbleberry fabrics too. The traditional blocks go with with these beautiful reproduction fabrics or your choice of fabrics. Nice addition for your quilt book collection.
All the projects in this book evoke cool afternoons and reading under a quilt! Traditional blocks set in creative designs make me want to finish my current quilting project and start pulling out reproduction fabrics from my stash.

The projects in Civil War Remembered are perfect for scraps (the designs would also look great made with other fabrics, too), which we all have drawers and bags full of, right? Great addition to my quilting library!
