Format: Paperback
This is not a quilt pattern book. Those who want a quilt pattern will be disappointed. I thoroughly enjoyed reading the diary entries and planning a quilt from the patterns pictured. It is possible to transfer the designs to patterns if you are patient and have some quilting experience. A wonderful addition to any quilter's library.

This book is really great if your looking to use up some of your civil war era fabrics! Or, even if you're not and want to make it a little more modern! The pictures of the blocks are very clear and you can easily sew them up if you a little quilting experience. There are some general instructions provided at the beginning of the book - but it's not a sew this to this type of thing.
I'm not super 'into' reading the letters - but the quilt results are gorgeous!

I love this book. The fact that the blocks are with the love letters makes it rather fun to do them up while you read. I have other books by this author and love all of them, especially Amish Circle Quilt.

I found this book to be wonderfully inspiring. The patterns could be utilized for both period and non-period quilters alike, while remaining interesting for non-quilters, too. The rich history behind each block gives the reader a peek back through a window in time; each story bringing the past alive. I recommend this book for it's historical content, it's portrayal of lives during the Civil War, as well as a quilter's reference book.

For anyone who loves history and sewing or quilting, this book is great. The letters are of the day-to-day lives of both the soldiers and family members back home. How the crops are doing, finances, and the health (or lack of it} of the family are usual topics. The soldiers write of fears,hopes,daily routines and being lonely. I love to sit and sew, using the wonderful reproduction fabrics and make the quilt blocks just as the women of the civil war era did.

I didn't know what to expect really other than a quilt book that had stories to take you through the blocks. I thought the blocks were going to tie in with the letters somehow but like I said, I didn't know what to expect. I ordered this book along with another similar book called The Farmer's Wife Quilt Sampler. Both are of the same premise - stories/letters along with quilt blocks. I was definitely not disappointed with the book. It would have been nice if it had a cd of the patterns like the other book but that's okay. I do love it for what it is.

This is a great book if you are interested in knowing what a few women were feeling and thinking while there loveone was at war.
How they would think of them. How they would make a quilt block to feel closer to there loveone. How they would not see or hear from there loveone for a very long time. How these quilt block make them feel closer.

Format: Paperback
I love reading letters and diaries. Nothing racy in these letters, but then, it was the middle of the 19th century... Many of the blocks are very nice, but while drawn to scale, none are drafted or notated for paper piecing. I am comfortable drafting my own, but if you're not, you may need to get a friend to help you re-create some of these. I intend to buy the companion book - I enjoyed it that much.
