From Civil War Legacies IV

We asked Carol to answer a few pressing questions we had about her quilting life—read her answers below!


Stitch This!: This is the fourth book in your best-selling “Civil War Legacies” series—what inspired book #1?

Carol HopkinsCarol: I’d been designing about six new patterns a year to introduce to shop owners at spring Quilt Markets. I’d never thought about writing a book, but during my fifth trip to Market, I was approached by several publishers, one of whom was Karen Soltys representing Martingale/That Patchwork Place. I have bookshelves full of That Patchwork Place books that I’ve collected over my 30 years of quilting, and I was so humbled and excited about the possibility of having my own book with that logo in the corner. It was my own “yes to the dress” moment!

ST!: What’s your typical process for designing quilts, and where do you find inspiration?

Carol: To be honest, I never design a quilt from start to finish before I start sewing. I’m always on the lookout for interesting blocks or settings in antique quilts. When I find an unusual block or a clever use of fabrics in a traditional block, I’ll make up one block as a reference. Then, when I’m ready to start a new quilt, I’ll make a few more, still with no plan for where I’m going.

I seem to have a 10-block attention span, so when I’ve made about that many, I start to think about how I’ll set them together and how many more blocks that would take. This is probably the main reason that I make small quilts—once I’ve figured out a small one, I’m ready to move on. I often think I’d like to remake my small quilts into full-sized quilts containing more of those cute little blocks, but that just doesn’t seem to happen.


Wedding Bouquet

ST!: It’s obvious that you have a love of reproduction fabrics; what is it that draws you to them over other fabrics?

Carol: Reproduction fabrics call to me for several reasons. One is the soft, muted colors that reflect the worn-and-loved patina of those found in antique quilts. I’m also drawn to the motifs and details in the prints themselves, especially the beautiful florals and paisleys which may contain 20 or more different colors.

When I first started quilting in 1980, there were no fabrics like these in the marketplace, so it was virtually impossible to reproduce an antique quilt. Turquoise polyester just didn’t do the job! When manufacturers started reproducing eighteenth- and nineteenth-century prints in the late 1980s, I could finally make quilts like those found in old trunks, and I’ve been focused on them ever since.

ST!: You must have many, MANY little quilts—how do you use them?  Do you display them all, rotate them out? How do you like to display them?

Carol: My favorite display is a two-foot-tall folk art angel with jointed arms that can hold a quilt without folding it. I also have two small wooden rocking chairs once used by my husband and his twin sister, the backs of which are perfect for showcasing quilts. Other little quilts are displayed on doll beds, folded up in piles in glass-front bookcases, rolled in baskets, or used as table toppers. I used to have groupings of quilts hanging on the walls, but when we went all fixer-upper and removed walls, those spaces disappeared. With more than 100 small quilts, there’s no way I can display them all at once, so some spend their time in storage bins, waiting for their turn to shine.


Streamers

ST!: What do you love about being a quilter?

Carol: In addition to the creative outlet that quilting itself provides, and the never-ending new offerings of fabrics, patterns, and techniques, it’s the friendships with and inspirations from other quilters that nourish my quilting soul. I’m challenged to think of another group of people with such diverse talents and interests who come together to share, listen, support, and encourage others more than the heartfelt way that quilters do.

ST!: Finish these sentences for us!

  • One reason making smaller quilts is so fun is: They allow you to explore something new without huge time investments, and then you get to move on to a new project with a different selection of fabrics.
  • If I had a three-word quilting mantra, it would be: Enjoy the process!
  • My best tip for new quiltmakers is: Find your ¼".
  • Before I begin a quilt, I must have: A scavenger hunt through my house to make sure I’ve found just the right fabrics from my stash. This goes with my other three-word quilting mantra: It’s here somewhere!
  • If I had a quilting superpower, it would be: To surround myself with an anti-procrastination shield.

  • Absolutely love the fabrics in her quilts! I’ve been making the table topper sized quilts and I adore them, I’m definitely going to enjoy Carol’s book, love her ideas on creating new blocks. She certainly has a great way to keep me motivated with my quilting habit!!

    —Lou Wagner on January 24, 2018
  • I love Civil War Quilts and have quite a bit of the fabric, but I need a few more colors to round out my stash. I have a couple of Carol Hopkins books and they are great. I think we could be friends. 🙂

    —Kay Menefee on January 24, 2018
  • I’m a little short on the stash for Civil War fabrics but intend to catch up soon!

    —Becky Bynum on January 24, 2018
  • I need a kick start! I love Civil War fabric but have a hard time finding any where I live. Ordering on line isn’t the same as seeing them in their true color.

    —Karen H on January 24, 2018
  • I’d say I need a few more colors and prints, as you can never have too many, but hubby and kids would say it needs some thinning LOL!

    —Christine E. on January 24, 2018
  • I would say my Civil War fabric stash needs a few more colors and prints. I need to go shopping! :o)

    —Susan L. on January 24, 2018
  • I need a kick start—I don’t have any yet. I have a quilt fabric shop near me that has a huge area of Civil War Reproduction fabrics and I love looking through them, but I’ve never bought any. I’d love this book to get that kick start I need. Thanks!

    —Jeanne Nordquist on January 24, 2018
  • I have some civil war fabric but need more. It is time to go shopping.

    —NancyB on January 24, 2018
  • I have a fair amount but could always use more. Love her books.thank you for this awesome opportunity to get another book

    —Robin on January 24, 2018
  • I don’t have a "lot", but I do have some stashes that are specifically set aside for Civil War quilts that I’m just dying to use. Winning this book would sure be the jump start I need t do that! Thanks for the chance.

    —Cheryl Buchanan on January 24, 2018
  • I need to go shopping! The Civil War fabrics I have were purchased for particular projects, so I don’t have nearly a big enough selection to make Carol’s little quilts. Love what I see about this book!

    —Sharon on January 24, 2018
  • I have only been quilting for 3 years and I definitely need more reproduction fabrics. I just started collecting and sewing with them in the past year. The shops around here only seem to carry the more modern contemporary fabrics, which are pretty, but just don’t appeal to my tastes. I love reproduction quilts and have set a goal of making one of each of the classic patterns. So far I have done a basket quilt, a lone star, a 3″ tumbler, a house quilt and have in progress a bow tie quilt and a 2″ tumbler.

    —Deidre McGee on January 24, 2018
  • I love the Civil War fabrics and quilt designs! Definitely need to shop for more fabric!

    —Kay on January 24, 2018
  • A kick start–I don’t have any yet! But WOW, I think I need to start collecting them soon!

    —Deborah D Jones on January 24, 2018
  • Some thinning—I’ve amassed a lot. I have quite a few scraps and it would be a Happy time to put these precious scraps into a quilt.

    —Rita S on January 24, 2018
  • My stash needs thinning in certain colors (browns and blues), but I need to go shopping for more greens and purples – somehow they find their way into just about every Civil War quilt I make and there just aren’t that many new fabrics out there. I am loving the muted teals that designers are showcasing lately.

    —Susan on January 24, 2018
  • Like Carol Hopkins I love the soft colors and the "old" look of reproductions. So cozy! My biggest problem is that I can’t sew quickly enough so my stash is always in need of thinning!

    —Ellie on January 24, 2018
  • I love your quilts and now I need to go shopping. The blue and gray is my favorite.

    Judy Tope on January 24, 2018
  • There’s no such thing as too much repro fabric. I’m ready to go shopping! More colors, more prints to choose from…bring it on!

    —Carole S on January 24, 2018
  • I’m just starting out wuth civil war quilting and am loving it. Love looking for vintage style prints!

    —Katie Shanahan-Jones on January 24, 2018
  • My Civil War Stash needs "a kick start – I haven’t started one yet.

    —Judy Clark on January 24, 2018
  • My Civil War fabric stash needs organizing. Either I get all sorted and put in totes of civil war fabrics on one shelf or get started on making more little quilts. I have all the other Civil War Legacies books and enjoy making several.

    —Cheryl Nesbit on January 24, 2018
  • I definitely need a kick start. I don’t have any reproduction fabrics and have not found many stores that carry this theme. I will not give up on my search and winning this book would certainly start things off right.

    —Lynn Darcy on January 24, 2018
  • civil war reproduction fabrics are my favorites and I definitely need more.

    —jo on January 24, 2018
  • I love reproduction fabrics, and have most of Carol’s books. My stash, no matter what fabric family it is, always needs thinning. I love making mini quilts. They make great gifts and I can always find a new corner or spot for a new one! Thank you, Linda S Pewaukee WI

    —Linda S on January 24, 2018
  • A few more colors and prints – I need to go shopping

    —Nancy Gerdes on January 24, 2018

    —LaureT on January 24, 2018
  • I have some civil war fabrics. But I need way more for my stash. It is my favorite reproduction time period.
    Love the book.

    —Lynette Wilson on January 24, 2018

    —Mary Kastner on January 24, 2018
  • Love Carols quilts and books too! I’m a bit addicted to these small quilts- like Caol, I have a 10 block attention span.

    —Susan on January 24, 2018
  • A few more colors and prints.

    —Lin on January 24, 2018

    —Alexandra on January 24, 2018

    —Kathy Swanson on January 24, 2018
  • It needs to be thinned.

    —Linda on January 24, 2018
  • Lots more colors and prints. I have done a few Civil War quilts, but would love to do more. I love the tiny prints and colors of that era.

    —Susan Stanton on January 24, 2018
  • I have one of the books and I would love to have another one. I am so fascinated with the material and the colors. I really love the smaller quilts. When my niece and nephews have baby girls not only do a make a quilt for the baby but have started making doll quilts to match.

    —Kimba McCormick on January 24, 2018
  • My stash definitely needs a kick start. I only have a handful of reproduction fabrics because I don’t usually do traditional quilting. That being said I love traditional quilts and I like to decorate in a primitive style. I think it would also be fun to make something in this book because the project is small and wouldn’t take to long to make.

    —Barbara on January 24, 2018
  • I’ve amassed a lot of Civil War fabrics (and scraps now!!). Aren’t the combinations wonderful? You can just swirl them around and they speak another language.

    Gail on January 24, 2018
  • I had never really thought about Civil War- type fabrics until I saw a quilt made by my ‘guru’ quilting friend. Absolutely loved the brown/beige combinations. And no, haven’t got any fabrics yet, but would love to start on one of the(easier)quilts.

    —Hedda on January 24, 2018
  • You can never have too many Civil War fabrics.

    —Barb W on January 24, 2018
  • I have lots of fabric and scraps-just not Civil War reproduction prints-so I need to go shopping! Such a lovely book!

    —Debbie on January 24, 2018
  • My stash definitely needs a kick start in reproductions. I like Carol’s choices in fabric and her use of them.

    —Cindy French on January 24, 2018
  • I really need to go shopping for more reproduction prints! Especially the pinks & cheddars–they can really make a quilt pop. Quilts made from reproduction prints have an instant "comfy" look that I love!

    —Carol LaPorte on January 24, 2018
  • A kick start, I don’t have any yet.

    —Joy Dickson on January 24, 2018

    —Ruth on January 24, 2018
  • I have quite an extensive stash, but my pieces are getting smaller and smaller as I use them in quilts. Of all the books I own, I have made more quilts from civil war legacies I and II than any others.

    —Ruth on January 24, 2018
  • I need more Civil War fabrics! These colors and prints speak to me, love the history and color tones. They truly add a ‘homey’ look to beautiful quilts.

    —Jonnie on January 24, 2018
  • My stash of reproductions needs thinnning. I just can’t resist collecting beautiful new fabrics. I just love the look of antique quilts.

  • A kick start—I don’t have any yet!

    —carol on January 24, 2018
  • My Civil War fabric stash needs a kick start. Would love to start making these quilts in light of the recent movement to remove CW statues. History is history. It cannot be erased. We can only learn from our mistakes.

    —kathy on January 24, 2018
  • A kick start-I don’t have any yet. The quilts displayed are beautiful, but very labor intensive.

    —Angie on January 24, 2018
  • A few more colors, I do need to go shopping…. this looks like a great book…. thanks for a chance to win.

    —Marsha on January 24, 2018
  • Small quilts have become my passion. After being diagnosed with Rheumatoid Arthritis, it became increasingly difficult to manage the larger quilts. After twelve hand surgeries, I considered selling my machines and equipment and giving up. Then, I discovered miniature quilts and a whole new world opened for me.

    —Mary M. on January 24, 2018
  • My Civil War fabric stash needs….. more brown and gold fabric.

    —Sandy on January 24, 2018
  • I definitely need some more colors and prints. I love Civil War fabrics and can’t wait to get this book.

    —MaryAnne Turko on January 24, 2018
  • Civil War books and fabrics are my quilting passion. If they had taught history in high school using quilts I would have aced every class. LOL I love reading the stories about the Civil War and am very, very sad about what everyone went through. I would love to add this wonderful book to my collection for more inspiration. I always need and want to shop for more reproduction fabrics, in fact, that is where two of my friends and I are headed Friday!

    —Dottie Alexander on January 24, 2018
  • My stash needs some thinning, I’ve amassed a lot. This book would be perfect to get started doing that. Love all the sweet quilt patterns.

    —Heartsdesire on January 24, 2018
  • My stash could use a thinning. I have collected reproduction fabrics for a long time.

    —Peggy on January 24, 2018
  • I definitely need to go shopping. Civil War fabrics are my absolute favorite. One can never have too much of their favorite. 🙂

    —Louise on January 24, 2018

    Jeanette Jensen on January 24, 2018
  • I love your books Carol and appreciate the detail and work that you put into each quilt within them! I am still in the collecting phase with my Civil War prints and feel like a kid in a candy store when I find a shop that carries them. It’s like discovering quilting and all the joy it brought 20+ years ago. Civil War patterns, books and fabrics bring me so much joy!

    Kimberly Burke on January 24, 2018
  • I do not have any Civil War-themed stash. I hate to admit that this area desperately needs a boost. ~smile~ Roseanne

    —Deanna Akeson on January 24, 2018
  • My stash is overflowing the shelves and the room. I could always use more border prints and shirtings. I do need to thin it out, but when I try I find too much good stuff.

  • My Civil War fabric stash needs a kick start—I don’t have any yet!

    —Susan on January 24, 2018

    —Tanya on January 24, 2018
  • I’ve amassed a lot and what’s wrong with that? I must admit my stash needs thinning – but to make that happen I probably need to purchase some more shirtings and other background type fabrics.

    Robin on January 24, 2018
  • A few more colors and prints would be helpful-my stash is moderate. Normally I lean toward bright colors in other fabrics, but there is just something about Civil War era fabrics that draws me to them. When fabric shopping, a few Civil War fabrics usually find their way into my basket.

    —luvmylogcabins on January 24, 2018
  • Civil War fabrics and other reproduction fabrics have always appealed to me and I have quite a stash. I have used them and will continue to thin the stash and, probably, add to it! 🙂

    —Carol Schon on January 24, 2018
  • I need a kickstart-I don’t have any yet!

    —Kathryn Cary on January 24, 2018
  • I’ve amassed alot of civil war fabric- but sadly hate to cut it up yet. Maybe a good book like Civil War Legacies will spur me on!

    —carol mandel on January 24, 2018
  • My stash needs some thinning and I love small quilts. Like Carol I tend to get tired of making the same block many times to finish a large quilt. I love the soft colors and the antique look of the reproduction fabrics as well so her quilts are perfect for me. I already own several of her books and patterns!

    —Maureen Klebe on January 24, 2018
  • I like to do scrappy quilts, so I have a pretty good stash — but there are always some colors that are under represented, such as purples. I am always on the lookout for a few great prints in the right colors to round out the assortment!

    —Elizabeth McDonald on January 24, 2018
  • A kick start! I keep looking at and loving the soft colors and beautiful quilts made with reproduction fabrics. This book would be a delightful start on a new journey!

    Kathleen on January 24, 2018
  • I just need to get busy using up my stash. I love the darker muddy colors of Civil War fabrics. The book looks like lots of sewing fun projects.

    —Rose on January 24, 2018
  • Looks like another wonderful book from Carol! I’ve been re-organizing my sewing space and my stash definitely needs thinning–lol!

    —Karen in Breezy Point on January 24, 2018
  • I need to do a little more shopping. I have a few civil war prints but not many. the quilt store I go to has many civil war prints.

    —beth d. on January 24, 2018
  • This book really inspires me to use my Civil War /reproduction prints. However, I think I need to go shopping for a few more. Our Spring Shop Hop would be a perfect time to do that.

    —Donna on January 24, 2018
  • I need to go shopping – I only have a handful of Civil War fabrics , even though I always love and admire the quilts I see using these fabrics.

    —Chris on January 24, 2018

    —Rose on January 24, 2018

    —Margaret Dalmer on January 24, 2018
  • I look at Book I and love the birds on the front, same with II and III and now — with IV — I need some to do the house stuff so I only can sew on Carol’s beautiful quilts!!

    —Vickie on January 24, 2018
  • Carol’s designs include some beautiful blocks! Her work is so inspiring. I have civil war fabrics in my stash but not enough to pull for a quilt. I need to go shopping! Thank you for the sweet giveaway!

    —Loris Mills on January 24, 2018
  • I really should say "Some Thinning" but I’m always on the lookout for certain colors 🙂

    —Jody Randall on January 24, 2018
  • Always need more colors and prints! 🙂

    —Kathleen McQuiggin on January 24, 2018

    —Donna on January 24, 2018
  • My stash has a lot of reproduction fabric, but I can always use more. Love Carol Hopkins books.

  • Maybe a little thinning…but those fabrics are timeless.

    —Dixie Bennett on January 24, 2018
  • My Civil War stash needs to be enlarged. I have just purchased fabric for one quilt and I know there are more in my future.

    —Sharleen Rainville on January 24, 2018
  • A kick start but in my defense it’s really hrd to find these fbrics in Germany.

    —Hildy on January 24, 2018
  • I love the fabrics but so far do not have a lot of them.
    Will add them along though.

    —Velva on January 24, 2018
  • A few more colors and prints—I need to go shopping.

    oh how wonderful. I made a civil war quilt for my son and daughter in law, who do civil war reenacting, for their wedding. They love it and it is on their bed.

  • I don’t have any Civil War fabrics, but I love the blues and grays, and all of her quilts provide a springboard of ideas for many other colours.

    —Carol Johnson on January 24, 2018
  • This year seems to be destined to have a lot of “must have” books. I am a big fan of miniature quilts and tend to like reproduction fabrics for them. This book has some twists of I’d favorites and new. HST framing a string block for example. I do know that I need some more CW colors….this book has some great examples….this is a great offer for this weeks drawing…would make me very very happy!!! Thanks Martingale

    —Judy Purcell on January 24, 2018

    —TexasStrong on January 24, 2018
  • My Civil War stash needs some attention. I just recently got started, but I’ve also used a lot of what I started with. I’ve fallen in love with this fabric and the quilts! I also am in dire need of more Civil War quilt books. 😊😊

    —Nancy Lyman on January 24, 2018

    —Deborah B. on January 24, 2018

  • I have lots of FQs of Civil War fabric to use in quilts but will need to add some yardage to make larger quilts.

    —Amy Cofer on January 24, 2018
  • Carol uses. The idea of making small quilts allows you to quickly have the joy of finishing a quilt. Then you can display a new quilt for others to see.

    —Heather on January 24, 2018
  • Definitely a kick start is what I need! Love looking at all the Civil War quilts just have never had the fabrics to make one…maybe this is the year and I know with your book I would have great inspiration!

    —Judi R on January 24, 2018
  • I love the civil war fabrics and quilts. They catch my eye every time. Could always use some more of those fabrics. Guess I’ll need to go shopping!

    —Sandy May on January 24, 2018

    I love my books by Carol, so I am really excited to see this new one. I would be thrilled to win! Thank you.

    —Sheila Fernkopf on January 24, 2018
  • My Civil War fabric stash needs me to pull fabrics and get to work ! I have a 4 foot shelf fairly full of them, separated from the rest of my stash because they are special !
    I am drawn to these for many of the same reasons Carol listed and agree wholeheartedly that small quilts are a delightful way to showcase them without the time-sink of making a full size bed quilt. I certainly have many bed size quilt projects in the works, but squeezing in a "little quilt" here and there does help one feel more productive!
    Thanks for the opportunity to comment, your book looks superb.

    —Peggy on January 24, 2018
  • I love the new book, good luck everyone.

    —Linda Cartwright on January 24, 2018

  • A few more colors and prints! I need to go SHOPPING!!!! thanks!!!!

    —Kim Marie Quade on January 24, 2018
  • I have only a few greens and a few reds from Civil War reproductions ~ used them in a Christmas project. Would love to build a Civil War stash: will probably settle for buying Civil War style fabrics just to make a tribute quilt for my great-great-grandfather’s service during the Civil War.

    —Marty on January 24, 2018
  • It needs a kick start!

    —Donna McDaniel on January 24, 2018

    and start collecting for my stash.

    —Mary Bruemmer on January 24, 2018
  • My Civil War stash needs some thinning. There is a lot of beautiful fabric that needs to come out and play. This book looks like it will do the trick.

    —Brenda C on January 24, 2018
  • While I have a nice amount of Civil War prints set aside just for quilts made with Carol’s other patterns, I certainly could use more for future quilts made with her new book’s patterns! So happy to see the 4th book! <3

    —Vicki Sprain on January 24, 2018
  • I need a bit more education on what makes a print a Civil War print and what doesn’t. I’ve tried to buy fabs here and there (for the stash) that I thought fit the criteria, but I’m not sure. I’d love to own the book and learn!

    —Teri Gailey on January 24, 2018
  • My Civil War fabric stash needs some thinning – I’ve amassed a lot and need to start using it up! Thanks for the chance to win a copy of "Civil War Legacies IV"!

    —gail on January 24, 2018

    —Stephanie L. on January 24, 2018
  • If I was being honest I would say my stash could use a little thinning. However, can you ever have too much cheddar? I have made at least one quilt out of each of the previous books and hopefully our Guild is going to choose one of the patterns out of the first book for our Raffle Quilt this year. Fingers Crossed as that means I can donate fabric. Can’t wait to try another mini!

    —Pam Haffner on January 24, 2018
  • This would be a great way to use up some of the reproduction fabric I have been collecting. I see many projects in my future from this book.

    —Judyk on January 24, 2018

I love the reproduction fabrics but I need a few more colors and prints so I can start making some of her quilts. So I need to go shopping soon. Thank you for the chance to win. Good luck everyone.

    —Valerie Thompson on January 24, 2018
  • Wow what a lovely book! If I’m lucky enough to be chosen that means more fabric shopping =new exciting project !

    Barbara harvey on January 24, 2018

    —Pamela Fritz on January 24, 2018
  • I have very few Civil War reproduction fabrics. Every time my husband sees a quilt using these fabrics he comments on how much he like them. I guess I need to start building my stash!!!

    —Joanne L Wilson on January 24, 2018
  • A few more colors and prints—I need to go shopping. Actually, I need many more!

    —Cindy Fraher on January 24, 2018

    —Judy Waters on January 24, 2018
  • I don’t have much of a reproduction stash, but would love to increase it and work on the Quilts in this book!

    —Jackie Trembley on January 24, 2018

    —Janice on January 24, 2018

    —Angela Bowling on January 24, 2018
  • A few more colors and prints…you can never have enough!

  • Think I need some thinning. This book might put me on the path putting some of it to good use.

    —Marie on January 24, 2018
  • My Civil War stash needs a spectacular backing fabric for a Civil War quilt that I have planned for my son who is a Civil War enthusiast. I have been collecting fabrics with Civil War themes for a while. My. Civil War stash could use maybe a few more patterns. Using Carol’s books may just help get that stash out that has been growing and put it to good use on the sewing machine.

    —Ellen T. on January 24, 2018
  • My C/W shelf is short on a few colors: Blue, Black, Cheddar, & light shirting backgrounds. There is a quilt or 5 in this book I’d love to make, so I’ll be shopping…..

    —Marianne on January 24, 2018
  • I need a few more colors and small prints. Every time I see one of Carol’s books I need to go shopping and fill out my stash.

    —Sherry Jurykovsky on January 24, 2018
  • I’m so excited to read that Carol has written another beautiful book for those of us that are hooked on Civil War reproduction fabrics! I have all three of her other volumes and find they are chock full of inspiration as well as beautiful photos and patterns. I’m in the process of making two Civil War Era, patterned quilts right now. One of which will be used by a friend who is an author of a book on the Underground Railroad in our area. As she researched her book she learned how quilts were an important part on the war on slavery so she asked me to make a sampler quilt to illustrate that point in her presentations. Carol’s books are nestled within my stash of Civil War reproduction fabrics, just waiting to be enjoyed. I’ll be delighted to add another one of her books to my treasured collection!

    —Nancy O'Keefe on January 24, 2018
  • I have lots of reproduction fabrics, but I love to add to my collection! I have had this book on my "i need" list since I first saw it featured-love!

But I love the warm cozy colors, and there’s a quilt in this book that is definitely calling my name. It would be a real treat to win this book. Thank you for the opportunity!

    —Doris R on January 25, 2018
  • I love civil war reproduction prints. I think it is because I love antique quilts. This is what I have been looking for to use my stash of reproduction fabrics. If I don’t win the book I will buy it.

    —Valorie Bonk on January 25, 2018
  • My stash contains a fairly large amt. of civil war fabrics. They are definitely my favorite and have never even thought of thinning the collection. It gives me a lot of satisfaction to be able to complete a quilt top from start to finish from just shopping from my stash. I feel fortunate that I am able to feed my passion with such beautiful choices.

    —Annette F. on January 25, 2018

    Glenda Hollander on January 26, 2018
  • My Civil War stash needs some thinning out as I have amassed quite a collection of fabrics over the years. There are too many small pieces that are favorites and hard to part with. Those bits would be perfect in a small quilt!

  • I have 38 fat quarters of a fabric collection, but need to buy a few larger cuts for use as background and backing fabric.

    —B J Kinney on January 26, 2018
  • My Civil War stash needs some serious thinning, I really love the reproduction fabrics, but I have a hard time saying no to any fabric.

    —stephanie woodward on January 26, 2018
  • I need to do some thinning–I have lots!

    —Kris B on January 26, 2018
  • Definitely need to use up some of what I have, but then, is there such a thing as having too much fabric?????

    Diane Hinton on January 26, 2018
  • Love the quilts in this book! I need a few more colours. Time to go shopping.

    —Debbie on January 26, 2018
  • I’ve been collecting Civil War fabrics for years and have quite a stash that needs thinning. Carol’s book would be perfect to help me to thin that stash. I enjoy making small quilts since they can be finished faster than the larger ones and are easy to display.

    —Marge on January 26, 2018
  • A few more colors! I’m ready to shop for those accents to make my Civil War quilts sing.

    —Linda Towers on January 26, 2018
  • So many ideas and not enough time to try them all! I have a great collection started and I always looking for more to add. It is a good thing I don’t have to choose a favorite fabric. I love them all. Thanks for a new book to enjoy.

    —Susan Waits on January 26, 2018
  • Well, I really should be thinning it down and using it up but the little devil on my shoulder keeps telling me I need more colors and prints.

    Joy P on January 26, 2018
  • I’ve been saving fabrics for a very long time but have not started a Civil War quilt. this would kick start me for sure.

    —Tammy on January 27, 2018
  • I LOVE this series. I started with one small basket of repro prints to make one small quilt, and I haven’t looked back, I keep seeing more fabrics and more designs to make. I always want more, new colors and prints.

    —Glenna D. on January 27, 2018
  • I have a pretty good collection of Civil War era prints but I could use more lights. Need to make more acquisitions! 1980 was the year I learned to quilt also. Civil War era has always been my favorite; I LOVE the designs and colors.

    —Julie F on January 27, 2018
  • Love the small quilts in your book. I have some fat quarters of the civil war reproductions and would love to have your book.

    —Sylvia on January 27, 2018
  • I have some Civil War fabrics, but not a lot. I have a tendency to go for brighter colors, but still like the look of period. Thanks for the draw.

    —Edith Gorzo on January 27, 2018
  • I don’t think you can have too much stash but I do need to thin mine, just a little bit!! I love all civil war reproduction fabric and red is my favorite!! Love your books and I don’t even own one…

    —Gloria on January 27, 2018
  • Truly Inspirational, God Bless.

    —Peggy S on January 27, 2018
  • The majority of my stash fits this category, but you can NEVER have too much!

    —Lorrie on January 27, 2018
  • I don’t have much civil war reproduction fabric in my stash. I tend to "oooh and ahhhh" over the quilts I’ve seen made with them, so it must be a sign that I need to make one (or more) for myself!!

    —Vicki Gray on January 27, 2018
  • My civil war fabrics need a lot more company. Don’t have near enough.

    —Phyllis Godschall on January 27, 2018
  • I don’t think I could ever have too much civil war fabrics. That is always where I gravitate in a quilt shop! Some always ends up going home with me. Love Carol’s books, the mini quilts are gorgeous.

    —Paulette on January 28, 2018
  • Some thining I’ve amast a lot! But I love it! What a great book to use to work on that!

    —Terry skones on January 28, 2018
  • I need to start thinning my repos by using them. They are hard to find in my area, so I order online or buy in Lancaster. Probably have some colors that I need to purchase. Have the Civil War 2 book. Love the photos in #4 and would love to win.

    —Louise Mease on January 28, 2018
  • I "need" this book to keep my collection current. Have made many from the other books, and love a number of little quilts in this new one.

    —Paula on January 28, 2018
  • My civil war fabric needs thinning for sure. That is my primary type of fabric and I love all the ideas shown in your book!

    —Patty on January 28, 2018
  • I definitely need several more colors, especially when I see another version of beautiful Legacy Quilts. Carol makes me want to go right to the store to complete my fabric collection.

    —Marianne from TN on January 28, 2018
  • I love the Civil War fabrics but I do need a kick start.

    —Judith on January 28, 2018

  • My civil war stash definitely needs more fabrics—would love this book!

    —Celeste Spaeth on January 29, 2018
  • I need to go shopping – I have some Civil Wat repro fabrics but need to expand the colors. At least that’s what I tell myself!

    —Eve on January 29, 2018
  • Oops. Meant to say Civil War 😆

    —Eve on January 29, 2018
  • Your books are my favorite. I’ve been a Civil
    War junkie since I was a girl, my dad taught
    Me about it. I collect Civil War fabrics and
    Would love to add this book to my collection

    —Rhondi Reeves on January 29, 2018
  • My Civil War fabric stash needs a kick start–I don’t have any yet!

    Bunny on January 29, 2018
  • My Civil War stash is … non-existent I’m afraid. I odn’t know why that is, since I’ve always loved them!

    —bookboxer on January 29, 2018
  • I definitely need a kickstart! I only have less than a yard! Thanks for the inspiration and a chance to win! These are such beautiful quilts from a timeless era!

    —Tabitha Keener on January 29, 2018
  • My Civil War stash could use some thinning! This book would be very helpful!

    —Linda on January 29, 2018
  • Beautiful. Love all the patterns. I have the fabric! Wish me luck 😊

    —Sandy Raphael on January 29, 2018
  • My stash has plenty of blues and other colors but still short on browns and "proper" reds.. Need to reduce my stash by sewing a quilt ! Really want to see how a finished one will look. Thank you.

    —Marta on January 30, 2018
  • Mine could use some thinning, but a few extra stripes wouldn’t hurt.

    —Marcia P. on January 30, 2018
  • Looks like another wonderful book, I’d love to have it!

    —Jacqueline Slagle on January 30, 2018
  • I wouldn’t say I really need more fabrics, but I always enjoy looking for a few more. I need to find that pattern that really challenges me to say, "yes! I really want to start working on that!"

    —Mami B on January 30, 2018
  • Hmmmm…. mine could use…. not exactly thinning but rebalancing colors maybe. 🙂

    —Lyn on January 30, 2018
  • More colors and prints!! Thank yoy for this opportunity!

    —Joni lawrence on January 30, 2018
  • I have the other 3 books. I need # 4. I have miniature civil war quilts on an old treadle machine cabinet.I could open my own shop with all my reproduction fabric.😀

    —Jean Nolting on January 30, 2018
  • Love, love, love these fabrics.

    —Janie Steele on January 31, 2018
  • I think it needs thinning, but I’m not sure which ones to thin! I need a plan. Perhaps there are a few in this book? I’m in!
