Take a look at what quilters like you are saying about Carol’s first two books in the Civil War Legacies series:

Civil War LegaciesCivil War Legacies

Five-stars“I might need to buy a second copy of Carol Hopkins’s book; after just 10 days I have traversed back and forth through this book to cover more distance than when I was lost in the lower levels of Penn Station and could not find a street-level exit.”

Five-stars“This book is the missing link in my quilt-book collection . . . the best investment I could have made. So far, I have made Papa’s Birds, Alexander’s Bean Pot, and Stars to Freedom to hang in my stairway. I’ll probably make every one of the rest of these little treasures!”

Five-stars“I love the personal stories Ms. Hopkins tells about each of the quilts, and the lovely photographs that make the quilts come to life. Although they look intricate to a beginner like me, each quilt is actually composed of fairly simple elements.”


Civil War Legacies IICivil War Legacies II

Five-stars“All the quilts in this book are so cute that I am motivated to make them all . . . and I may just be able to finish six small quilts in place of doing one King!!! Thank you Carol!”

Five-stars“Wonderful book! Has vintage patterns with contemporary instructions to make them. Also the history is great!”

Five-stars“Love it, love it. Like the variety of sizes in the ‘small’ quilts. Will be a great way to use up the reproduction scraps that I recently purchased at a favorite quilt shop.”

What makes Civil War Legacies III even more irresistible? The projects are charm pack, Layer Cake, and fat-quarter friendly! See all 16 projects here. >>>
