This book is amazing, starting with such great pictures, to the history, the quilts displayed are to die for and the history and stories are so facinating! There are patterns included for some of the quilts and the stories of the families and the background is tremendous! I have over 1000 quilt books and this is right at the top of the best of the best!

I am so impressed with this book and it's detail. Very well done. I even brought it to my quilt guild for show and tell earlier this week to share it.
Detailed, well written, great photos. An A++ book that you will look at again and again. Love it, cannot say enough about it.

Beautiful book with lots of photos of quilts to illustrate the well written articles. Don Beld is a wealth of knowledge on war quilts and techniques to construct them in the original methods.

I thoroughly enjoyed this book! Well researched with great photography, patterns are given to replicate quilts of the era. Insight with great visuals is given to choose the proper reproduction fabrics from that period. Should you decide to make one like these "potholder" quilts, several options are given for today's quilter. Background on both those who made and those who received these quilts was fascinating.

This is a wonderful book, full of rich photos and engaging narratives. As a Civil War buff, I love the stories and historical details. I also bought copies for my mother and mother-in-law who are both quilters. This book will be the perfect Mother's Day gift for them!

7 of 8 people found the following review helpful By C. Byrne on October 29, 2012
Format: Hardcover
The first part of the book, the section on antique quilts is very well researched and written and the photographs are good. Then, half way through the section on making modern quilts, the thing seems to fall apart. I'm not even sure I can explain what happened? The difference in the two writers? The editor just gave up? One of the quilts even states that the block used was never included in a civil war quilt, but because someone thought it did at one time they put in in anyway. Really? There is so much other great information, why even include it? Then there are the appendix stories. What on earth the story about the bald eagle had to do with civil war quilts I'll never understand. Were they trying to fill a quota of pages? Seriously, there is a ton of great information here, but be aware you'll be scratching your head by the end of it.

As I am a collecteer of antique quilts, this book was a great source of information about Civil war times and how the lives of both side were impacted. Also how quilters constructed their quilts and the uses they were put with by soldiers.
