As with her previous four volumes, Mary includes many quilting designs to choose from in her latest publication. This particular volume features authentic motifs from the civil war era. These designs are simple enough for beginners to use and perfectly complement traditional civil war quilt projects, such as those in Carol Hopkins' book, Civil War Legacies. There are 18 designs to choose from and within these motifs are both continuous-line designs, as well as designs for borders, blocks and setting triangles.
I like how Mary indicates the size of the quilting design, so you'll know if it will fit your quilt block or border. And if it doesn't fit, don't worry, Mary has included information on how to resize the patterns, both in width and length. She also provides helpful tips on marking the patterns, choosing batting and preparing the backing. Information on using a regular sewing machine, as well as a long-arm machine is also included.

I was pleased to see another volume of quilting designs by Mary to add to my collection. These are great motifs to use on a variety of quilts, so don't think that they will only work on civil war era patterns. I know that I'll be using these on my quilts, civil war or not!

Review from Fabrications magazine

This is a design reference for authentic Civil War designs as well as many other filler patterns and is suitable for use on a longarm quilting machine, a traditional sewing machine or by hand. The continuous-line motifs are displayed in 18 pattern sets featuring quilting motif designs for blocks, borders, and setting triangles. There is also a handy pull-out instruction booklet to help make the whole process easy to follow and well planned.
