My new book from Rosemary Youngs arrived in today's mail into my happy hands. The book does not disappoint. There are poignant excerpts, notes, and comments from the Civil War era along with exciting blocks. These little blocks are a scrap quilter's delight and there is also many blocks that provide a large area for use a focus fabric of some type. From what I understand, if you do not wish to draft the blocks for sewing, you may purchase a separate CD containing the block patterns.

Not what I expected. The blocks reminded me more of crazy quilts as the center of each block had a vignette in it. And as a history buff I expected more information than "inspired by the diary of ...." Inspired How???? I wanted to make a civil war sampler quilt but not with this book. Some good ideas but not for me.

Love to quilt these blocks with my friends and most are by hand. They are small and easy to take and the patterns are great. A good lap top project with this book.
