Bright colors, bold prints and large pieces are all very well, but we agree with Carol Hopkins, who writes in the introduction to this book, "It's hard to ignore a vintage scrap quilt!" Like her, we're charmed by the variety of fabrics and fascinated by how some "weird and wonderful" combinations end up working so well together. Carol has created a collection of 15 quilt projects that provide you with an opportunity to use your own stash of reproduction fabric scraps to create quilts. They're all made from simple, traditional blocks arranged in a variety of settings. That said, there's absolutely no reason why you couldn't use Kaffe Fassetts, batiks or yardage to make your own versions--we're sure they'd look equally as pleasing. Our one--tiny--disappointment is that Carol only provides instructions for small quilts. (Most have edges that are 30" or less). Still, these are a good size to group as a feature on a wall in your home, gift to a fellow crafter who also loves "repros" or pop on the hall table with an elegant vase. --Australian Homespun Magazine
We are all drawn to a vintage scrap quilt whether it is to wonder about who owned the clothes prior to them becoming a quilt or just to marvel at the variety of fabrics used at a time when patchwork shops were unheard of! This book is a collection of 15 quilts, which provides an opportunity for you to use your own scraps of reproduction fabrics to create small quilts reminiscent of those from the mid-1860s. Each quilt allows you to showcase dozens of fabrics in simple blocks and arranged in a variety of settings. Small quilts are a perfect way to experiment with combinations of prints and colors without a large investment in time or fabric and, of course, the patterns are geared towards speed piecing and the use of a sewing machine. There are 15 traditionally inspired quilt patterns to choose from featuring classic blocks evocative of the era. --Fabrications Magazine

I bouth this quilt for the paterns the,selves as I do all my pattern books. And I am a scrappy quilter so the fabrics them selves are neither matching nor era oriented. This is the perfect book for me for those reasons. I can make cute scrappy quilts and love the patterns.
The quilts are mini quilts, but as every quilter knows, if you use your mayh you can make it any way you want, and who follows patterns to the exact anyway. I am currently making 6 total minis to make one king size so honestly you can take the pattern and make it your own.
Anything created with Civil War reproduction fabrics catches my attention, but not everyone does as nice a job at combining the right prints with the quilt designs as the author has done here. I want to make several of them right now, but have too many projects in the works already. I do know that this won't be a book that just sits on the shelf without getting used.
Even if you are not particularly smitten with Civil War fabrics, but love little quilts, these designs would look great in any fabrics, from scrappy to a designer collection. I would recommend, as has been stated in another review, that you use smaller scale prints or the design will be lost when cut into small parts for the quilts. Some medium scale prints would work for the borders that are on most of the quilts.
I seldom buy a quilt book without actually looking through it first, but this is one book that I pre-ordered and I am definitely not disappointed.
