This is a very interesting book, not only full of beautiful quilts, but quilts with a story. These quilts are inspired by the diary of Adelia, a young woman who lived in lllinois at the time of the American civil war. The book includes excerpts from the diary and period photos. The fourteen projects include full instructions. This 80 page book is something to treasure.
Review from Stick Your Nose in a Book: Quilting Book Reviews by Jennifer Zoeterman
I love this book. One half Adelia Thomas's diary; the other half reproduction projects. Adelia was 19 in 1861, living in northern Illinois on the cusp of the Civil War. Her diary reflects her everyday life, family, and sewing, set against the backdrop of advancing war. Includes historical photographs and 14 lovely projects inspired by her diary.
Kathleen Tracy's love of quilting began in 2000, when she picked up a book on small quilts and made one for her daughter's dolls. Using traditional blocks and reproduction fabrics, she designs quilts that are inspired by quilts from the past. Kathleen enjoys hand quilting and using scraps to make her quilts look like they came from another time. She is the author of several popular quilting books published by Martingale.Visit Kathleen's website
