Quilts from Civil War Legacies IIHow She Spent Her Summer Vacation

Carol Hopkins started quilting in the days before rotary cutters (Yes, Virginia, there was a time when quilts were cut out with scissors). It was 1980, and she made a queen-size Log Cabin quilt using a yardstick to measure her pieces. That’s determination for you!

She was drawn to small quilts early on (“They match my attention span,” she laughs) and she made so many she became known locally for them. But it was a simple strip quilt she’d made for her five nieces’ American Girl dolls that launched her pattern company. When she showed the quilts at a guild meeting, the response was so enthusiastic that she was asked to teach a class and later, to write the pattern for it. That pattern, Little Nieces, remains Carol’s all-time bestselling pattern.

But it was when Carol discovered Civil War reproduction fabrics and paired them with her small quilts that a new passion was born. She designed six patterns for her first Quilt Market booth in 2006 and hasn’t stopped since. Her first book, Civil War Legacies, is a collection of 15 of her most popular patterns using Civil War fabric. It was also Martingale’s number-three bestseller of 2012. That means a LOT of small quilts are being made out there in Quiltland.

Carol’s new book, Civil War Legacies II, is another irresistible collection of small quilts, including her most successful pattern in Civil War quilt fabric, Baskets for Betsy.

FABRIC GIVEAWAY ALERT! Our friends at Marcus Fabrics have provided a bundle of fabrics from Judie Rothermel’s “Enduring Legacy” line to share with you! Find out how you can win it plus a copy of Civil War Legacies II at the bottom of this post. Visit the Marcus Fabrics blog for another chance to win the eBook!

Enduring Legacy from Marcus Fabrics


Civil War Legacies IISo what does all this have to do with summer vacation? Everything, because that’s when Carol designs, sews, writes patterns, and takes care of all the other details involved in running a pattern business. Since 1976, Carol has been a professor of literacy and language education at Purdue University, and summer break is when she devotes herself to quilting. I don’t know if that’s a very restful vacation, but it sure sounds like fun!

I asked Carol what inspires her and how she goes about designing all those quilts. She explained that she doesn’t design on paper; she has to work in fabric and let the quilt grow organically. She starts by looking at pictures of antique quilts for inspiration, then grabs a block book and hunts for just the right block to work with. She’ll make a group of blocks and play around with them on her design wall until everything comes together just right. I also asked if she had a favorite part of the process, and her answer was one we can all relate to: buying the fabric!

Take a look at some of Carol’s 17 new quilts from Civil War Legacies II:

Quilts from Civil War Legacies II
“Lizzie’s Tents” and “Lilies for Connie”

Quilts from Civil War Legacies II
“Allie Beane” and “Gettysburg Sun”

Quilts from Civil War Legacies II
“Allegheny County” and “Dear Friends”

Quilts from Civil War Legacies II
“Lauren’s Hat Pins” and “Goober Peas”

See more of Carol’s latest designs here.

Thanks to all who entered the drawing! The randomly chosen winner is Annette, who says:

“I am a sewer of many years of many different things, from clothing to handbags. I am truly a newbie to the making of quilts and would much rather do small items. Like Carol, a lot of the items I have made through the years have been organic so to speak. I like to grab the fabric and start the cutting. Let the magic happen. I have made a couple of hand bags with the Civil War era fabrics for gifts. They were gorgeous and well received.”

We’ll email you about your prizes, Annette. Congratulations!

    —Kim O'Mallon on March 11, 2014
  • What beautiful patterns, I certainly have enough reproduction fabric in my closet, especially a lot of the older Sturbridge Village collections that would be wonderful to use in the blocks

  • I love traditional quilts, both pieced and applique. I cannot get into the modern quilt era at all. The reproduction colors and style fit my home decor and I’m passionate about it. I’ve made several of Carol’s patterns using Judie’s fabric lines and they are my favorite! Especially Betsy’s basket, Papa’s Birds, and Mary Smith’s dishrags.

    —Susan Gilbert on March 11, 2014

    —Sue on March 11, 2014
  • One winter when there wasn’t much snow a quilt shop had a sale that ended with a 4″ snowfall, then you received at pattern to make with the fabrics (CW repros) you had bought, My DD and I did this and now she was 2 quilts to show for a snowless winter. K ps Now I need more CW fabric.

    —kathy pfaltzgraff on March 11, 2014

  • I love the simplicity of these pieced quilts and the fabrics that so define a time in history.

    —Susan Stone on March 11, 2014
  • Oh my gosh those are gorgeous! I want to make them all!

    —Pam Atkins on March 11, 2014
  • Reproduction fabrics Have been on my radar for many years. Something about them has always appealed to me. I have made several quilts from them and my son loved his queen sampler reproduction quilt that he immediately put on his bed. I think one of the things that draws me to this fabric is often the historical information that often surrounds this fabric, these blocks, and the quilts. I love Carol’s Civil War Legacies. Her second ‘Legacies’ looks like a lot of fun too!! Thanks.

    —Marie Chat on March 11, 2014
  • When I first started quilting a 2 years ago; the first fabrics I fell in love with were CW fabrics and still am. I prefer traditional quilts. Part of the appeal to me is not only the beautiful fabrics, but also the history of the CW fabrics and quilts–not to mention my quilting mentor is a HUGE Civil War fabric nut just like me!!

    —Krysti on March 11, 2014
  • Love the fabric. thanks for a chance to win it.

    —Marge buck on March 11, 2014
  • I use my civil war repro fabrics to emulate the quilts of that era. Love the colors but wish sometimes they were a bit brighter as I believe the originals to have been. Judie’s are the best but I really have been looking for Lancaster Blues and not quite finding them!!!

    —HelenMarie Marshall on March 11, 2014
  • I love the civil war fabrics…they make beautiful scrappy quilts! I just finished machine quilting a queen size made with civil war fabrics.

    —Diane Norden on March 11, 2014
  • I have been sewing civil war quilts for several years. Love the reproduction civil war fabrics. Frustrated at times because until recently I had a hard time finding the fabric. Glad civil war fabric is catching on.

    —Linda Neff on March 11, 2014
  • I have made an Underground Railroad quilt, and also a pattern by Bonnie Blue with my CW collection. It is my ultimate goal to make Civil War Love Letters in honor of my great-great-grandfathers who served. I love Civil War fabrics for miniatures. They work so well!

    —Miss Jean on March 11, 2014
  • I’ve been making 5/8 inch hexies using only civil war fabrics because even at that small size, the civil war fabrics are an excellent choice because of the size of many of the motifs. I’m always on the lookout for more choices as I still have about 7500 more hexies to make and am trying to use different ones for each diamond shape. Thanks for the opportunity to of winning.

    —jojo on March 11, 2014

    —sandy strader on March 11, 2014
  • I discovered Civil War fabrics over 20 years ago and have loved them every since. I married a Civil War Re-enactor and he wanted me to make him a Sanitary Commission Quilt….which was based on samples of CW quilts in one of Barbara Brackman’s books. I collected CW fabrics until I had the right ones and made him a Civil War Sanitary Commission Quilt, which of course, had to be hand quilted! I puchased the fabrics from a sweet little fabric shop in Gettysburg, PA. Since then I’ve made other quilts using reproduction fabrics. I came across Carol Hopkins first book last year and love how she uses so many different CW fabrics in her designs. So looking forward to her second book. Thanks for offering a chance to win her book!

    —Denise on March 11, 2014

  • I have a civil war quilt on my bed, and won 1st place for it…

    —Donnae C on March 11, 2014
  • I miss our quilt shop that carried fabric the Civil War re enactors would use for clothing. it would be awesome to win!

    dianne on March 11, 2014
  • I would do Allie Beane out the bundle of fabric. Civil war fabrics are my favorite pallet to work with. I love all the history behind it as well.

    —Sue Makinen on March 11, 2014
  • I love, love CWR fabrics!

    I used several in the queen sized EPP Grandmother’s Flower Garden quilt I made my nephew for his first house (he’s an Afghanistan veteran, wonderful young man!), in the queen appliqués quilt I made my brother and his wife, and in my current project, a Robrt Callahan’s Album of Memories. I’m sure they will pop up in more projects, because I can’t get enough of them!

    —Cindy Brown on March 11, 2014
  • I love Civil war fabrics and have recently made several small quilts and wall hangings. I

    —Barb Miller on March 11, 2014
  • I like Civil War fabric a lot. I usually don’t put it all together in one project though. I like to use one or two prints scattered around in a more modern project. It’s fun to see how modern these prints can look with a design twist.

    —Karen B on March 11, 2014
  • I have been reading about civil war quilts and would love to put this fabric to work right away! I love the colors and the warmth these color radiate !Thanks for the chance for putting a new style of fabrics into my hands!

    —Denise/Folsom,Calif. on March 11, 2014
  • I have a few reproduction fabric, but not enough to make a quilt. I have Carol’s first book and am anxious to get her second one. The patterns are just gorgeous, and I love the "Enduring Legacy" collection from Marcus Fabrics, Judie Rothermel is a gem of a designer.

    —Deborah DeBerry on March 11, 2014
  • Love the fabrics! I think they would have to be used in a quilt pattern from that era.

    —Sandy T on March 11, 2014
  • I’m not sure of the pattern yet but my nephew and his family are Civil War renactors so it would definetly be made by had!

    —Amy Goins on March 11, 2014
  • Make that made by HAND so they could use it on camp outs.

    —Amy Goins on March 11, 2014
  • I’d use the fabrics to repair some old quilts that have pieces in tatters. An old quilt my Grandmother used to read to me beneath needs repair. I loved the paisley blocks and would trace them with my finger even when she told me not to! Surprise, those were the blocks that disintegrated first!

    —CR on March 11, 2014
  • This is wonderful. Thank you for this awesome chance. I have discovered civil war fabrics. And except for the greens, I love them all. I am making a king size quilt with civil war fabrics using civil war blocks from Barbara Brackman for my son and his fiancé for their wedding. I would love to add to the small stash of fabrics I have to put into the quilt.

    —Lori Smanski on March 11, 2014
  • I have several books, including the first one of hers, but pitiful little fabric to make such a quilt…would make one of them! Love the soft, comforting look of this palette.

    —Candra on March 11, 2014
  • Had never heard of these fabrics before but they are lovely and I would appreciate the opportunity to work with them!

    —Sydnie on March 11, 2014
  • Gorgeous fabric and patterns! I don’t have much civil war fabric in my stash as yet–but love love them.

    —Cheryl L on March 11, 2014
  • I’ve been collecting 4 inch block patterns and would like to make a Dear Jane quilt. These colors and designs would be so nice to include. Thanks for the opportunity to win these fabrics.

    —Shirley Graff on March 11, 2014
  • I started collecting old quilts 35 years ago. I so admire the stitches and the fabric. I also wonder about the stories behind the artists who created such lovely pieces. With that inspiration, I began piecing my own quilts. I love the reproduced fabrics and traditional patterns and am very interested in your fabrics and new book.

    —Susann Skinner on March 11, 2014
  • I’ve only used repro fabric in one quilt and it was a traditional sampler. Thanks for the chance to win.

    —Cecilia on March 11, 2014
  • Hi. I love the warmth and the antique shades of the civil war fabric. I make my placemats and table runners out of them. They give my dining room a rustic look. When I go into a fabric store, those are the fabrics I zero in on. – Carol

    —Carol Boudreau on March 11, 2014
  • I have used Civil War fabrics and I love them, I’ve mostly made mini wall quilts. I’m doing a block of the month right now with 12 inch finished blocks. I would love to add more Civil War fabric to my stash. I’ve always love the House Quilts and would like to try a house quilt.

    —Jenelle Boxberger on March 11, 2014
  • I love fabric of any kind. I usually make small projects, but I have made some quilts.

    —Alice Oickle on March 11, 2014
  • I haven’t made anything with them but I have started looking at these fabrics because many of the "Honor" quilts are made with these and similar types of fabrics. My sons and husband both were in the military so to me, an honor quilt would be awesome to make for someone with these

    —claire on March 11, 2014
  • One of my goals is to make a traditional quilt with Civil War replica fabrics. I am an historian as well as quilter, and my area of interest is the Civil War.

    —Judy on March 11, 2014
  • I love the Civil War Fabrics & made one some years ago would love to make another one

    —Janice Aitkens on March 11, 2014
  • A baskets sampler would be great in these fbrics. I’ve made a Courthouse Steps and Log Cabin already with Civil War fabrics.

    —Barbara Ostrander on March 11, 2014
  • I love the civil war reproduction fabrics. I am just finishing up a queen size quilt made with those fabrics and planning another smaller project with the civil war prints also.

    —Donna on March 11, 2014
  • I recently started looking at Civil War quilts and fabrics. The patterns are what caught my attention. They remind me of some of the fabrics my Mom used to make dresses for me when I was in elementary school. She used all the leftover fabric from the dresses to make quilts.

    —Mary on March 11, 2014
  • I haven’t had the pleasure of working with Civil War Prints. I have seen some very stunning quilts made out of these fabrics. I’m up to the challenge if I’m the lucky winner. Thank you

    —Terri Tresise on March 11, 2014
  • Civil War fabrics have always been my favorite – I make lots of table mats and wall hangings to add rich color to my decor. An extra lapsize on the sofa is always good, too!

    —Sherry Ellis on March 11, 2014
  • I just finished a lap quilt using Civil War Reproduction fabrics. Those reproduction fabrics are gorgeous. Thanks for the opportunity to win.

    —Kalen on March 11, 2014
  • My quilt guild did a HST swap with Civil War prints and I am hoping to make a twin size quilt with it for my son.

    —OHSue on March 11, 2014
  • I love reproduction fabrics and have made a couple of mini quilts using them . Thanks for the chance.

    Sheila on March 11, 2014
  • I love creating quilts of all genres. It makes it exciting to change the tempo and try something new or different. Fun to see a new pattern made in reproduction fabrics and then possibly in modern fabrics as well. The creative process inspires me to do more.

    —Cheryl on March 11, 2014
  • A quilt made with civil war repros is my idea of a timeless comfort quilt. I do appreciate Marcus Fabrics for making reproduction fabrics available.

    —Dixie on March 11, 2014
  • I’ve rarely met a fabric I didn’t like, but the civil war reproductions are right up there among my favorites. I tend to cut them up and mix them in with other scraps.

    Anne Wiens on March 11, 2014
  • I love the colors of the Civil War fabrics. I have not had an opportunity to make a quilt with those yet, but would love to pair the fabric with one of Carol’s beautiful patterns. I do believe I like the "Lauren’s Hat Pins" pattern best, or maybe it is "Allegheny County" pattern. Either would be great to sit on the porch with a tall glass of ice tea and stitch away the summer evenings.

    —Sandy Saylor on March 11, 2014
  • Civil War quilts with reproduction fabrics is next on the list of must do’s. I can hardly wait to get started when I win this bundle!

    —Audrey on March 11, 2014
  • I love Civil War replica fabrics and have made a full size quilt and some small table toppers. Would love to try one of Carol’s patterns. Thank you for a chance to win your wonderful line of fabrics.

    —Rusty McHale on March 11, 2014
  • About a year ago, my husband started quilting along with other quilting friends husbands and he became interested in Civil War fabric/quilts. Although he has only completed one quilt (he also does the actual quilting for my quilts), his fabric interest tends to lean towards civil war/americana. I would love to win this giveaway to present to him.

    —Donna on March 11, 2014
  • I do like the Civil War repro fabrics. They are great in scrappy quilts and the colors all play well together. I am currently finishing a hexagon mosaic quilt from 1800’s repros.

    —Mary D - OKC on March 11, 2014
  • not to long ago there were only a handful of web sites that displayed quilt blocks besides the usual book and other media and I searched on this web site for interesting blocks and found a lot of old time blocks to do the old time way. I did make a quilt using this method and it took me forever to do just like the quilts of my great aunts and grandmothers time and before. it was a learning lesson I wont forget but I like to new modern way of cut and sewing those patterns!

    —diane on March 11, 2014
  • I have only seen Civil War prints in picture BUT I am loving what I see. Would love to make something with them. As a genealogy buff, I wonder if any of my ancestors used prints like these to make a quilt to send off to war with a loved one!

    —Cindy Fraher on March 11, 2014
  • I am so interested in the civil war. These fabrics are just outstanding. You could almost see the story.

    —Virginia Davis on March 11, 2014
  • Got a book about Civil War Quilts about 6 months ago. Have not had the $$ to get the fabrics yet, but did use one of the designs to make a lap quilt for my Mother-in-law. She is in a wheelchair and is always cold. I put a fake fur pocket on it so she could stick her hands in it to keep them warmer. I put her name across the pocket so they will know it is her’s. She lives many states away but I am told that she loves it. I can not waite to get my hands on some reproduction fabrics as I would like to make a quilt for my Father-in-law out of it.

    —Tina on March 11, 2014
  • I collect CWFs in hopes of making a repro quilt. I missed the Anniversay (where do
    I send a card, anyway) but one or two years after the event is acceptable for quilts, right?

    —Sandy on March 11, 2014
  • I’m a traditional quilter and love the old block patterns. I like Carol’s quilt patterns and love seeing the blocks set on point, it gives the quilt a more complex look. Thanks for the chance to win!

    —Kaye M. on March 11, 2014
  • I love the delicate designs and colors of these style of prints. They just quietly shine in most any pattern. I love doing table runners because they are small and I can change them quickly.

    —Cindy Wienstroer on March 11, 2014
  • I love Civil War fabrics and love piecing as well as applique. Repros are oerfect for English Paper Piecing. I am lucky I didn’t short out my computer from all the drool over the new book!!!

    —Alice on March 11, 2014
  • Lauren’s Hat Pins above is beautiful! I started working on my own Civil War quilt and have been collecting fabric ever since. I made a block for General Lee and General Grant, plus the Courthouse steps block in the center. I’ve also put in some rail fences. It is definately a work in progress!

    Wonderful giveaway for us Civil War buffs and quilters! Thanks!

    —Pam on March 11, 2014
  • It has been witin the last year that I have been reading up on civil war quilts and fabric used. I have bought Barbara Brackman’s "Civil Wat Sampler" and started to design a quilt I want to make from the book I think I’m hooked on all the beautiful fabrics. Iwould lov3 to win the fabric from Marcus and the Civil War Legacies II. Thank you for the opportunity.

    —Kathleen Bigler on March 11, 2014
  • Civil War fabrics are so versatile, I use them to make all kinds of patterns! Small quilts are my favorites because I seem to have so little time to devote to my first love – quilting!

    —Paula Klaassen on March 11, 2014
  • I have never used CW fabrics, but I would love to try the pattern Gettysbug Sun from the book.

    —Bridget on March 11, 2014
  • I would love to win these fabrics. I just love the "Gettysburg Sun" quilt and I would love to make it. It is so lovely and warm looking. It just warms my heart when I look at it….Thank you for the chance to win!

    —Joan Chenette on March 11, 2014
  • I love the fabrics but have not had a chance to quilt with them. Would love to some day!

    —Dorie DePuy on March 11, 2014
  • I love the civil war reproduction fabric. I have made two of the Bonnie Blue quilt patterns and one other quilt pattern I am not a bright or flashey quilt maker. Love the more subdue tones

    —Gladys Thompson on March 11, 2014
  • Beautiful! I dress vintage dolls and make quilts for them (when I’m not making baby quilts for friends and relatives) would LOVE true repro fabrics: I have a 1950’s Shirley Temple needing her Civil War era Littlest Rebel and Little Colonel outfits!

    thanks for the chance

    —Sharon on March 11, 2014
  • I love Civil War Fabrics. I did the Block of the Month a couple of years ago and had it machine quilted and it won a Blue Ribbon.

    —Vickie on March 11, 2014
  • I love civil war fabrics, but haven’t made anything with them yet.

    —jane d on March 11, 2014
  • This is the first I have seen this fabric..It is soo pretty

    —rita detwiler on March 11, 2014
  • I bought a box of reproduction fabrics at a library book sale for $5 the colors are deep and amazing. The box was huge and full of fabrics. I have made a melon seed table topper so far. What a great fabric collection you have put together for the giveaway and Ms. Hopkins color choices on her quilts look very nice. I have trouble with choosing the right combinations. Thank you for the giveaway!

    —Janie on March 11, 2014
  • I have just discovered Civil War era quilts after my long love affair with Depression era quilting. I recently visited the Virginia Quilt Museum and fell absolutely head over heels for the vintage Civil War quilts on display there, and am now inspired to learn more not only about the quilts themselves, but how I can recreate some of them.

    —Jan on March 11, 2014
  • I love the look and color of the civil war fabrics. They really appeal to my sense of creativity and I use them often. I keep a growing stash of Civil War prints to be used in the next great quilt.

    —Debbie Wilson on March 11, 2014
  • I have been buying Carol’s patterns for some time. Love the first book and looking forward to this second one. Civil War fabrics are all that I purchase these days – they create quilts that are warm, cozy, and make me think of home and family.

    Shirley

    —Shirley Flowers on March 11, 2014
  • I’m always collecting reproduction Civil War fabrics. The colors are so beautiful. I made 2 Civil War quilts so far. The first one, Love Letters, turned out beautiful. I gave it to my best friend and her husband because they live in Gettysburg, PA. I made my second one, The Underground Railroad. I plan on keeping that one. I love the history and many of the books do tell you about the blocks. Keep all those books and history lessons comimg. I have lots of quilts to make.

    —Karen Sieredzinski on March 11, 2014
  • At first I didn’t like the Civil War fabrics and then all of a sudden that’s all I wanted to work with. The quilts are amazing!

    —Robin on March 11, 2014
  • Civil War reproduction fabrics are my favorites and the quilts in Carol’s latest book are definite winners! As a volunteer at our local museum, I especially enjoy working on Civil War displays and learning about CW history. Lovely fabrics and quilt designs from a bygone era–a perfect combination!

    —Judy Offen on March 11, 2014
  • I really love the Civil War fabrics. I have made some smaller quilts and especially love the miniature quilts. I am taking a BOM sampler class this year and chose to use Civil War fabrics in it. There is a lot of history involved.

    —Judy D on March 11, 2014
  • I love Civil War Fabrics and use them in all my quilts! They’re great in the Folk Art style quilts I prefer, and go so well in all my scrappy favorites. I like the more muted colors and patterns they offer – they’re just my favorite color pallet.

    —jan davis on March 11, 2014
  • I was never a fan of these reproductions. But I purchased 36 small 9-patch blocks done in them at a guild quilt flea market. I decided to make a table topper from them and am in love with it. I am now very interested in these fabrics and patterns (and history) from that time.

    —Karen B on March 11, 2014
  • OMG – Civil War reproduction fabrics are my favorite! I got hooked when I made the year long sew-along that Barbara Brachman did a couple of years ago and I’ve never looked back. Carols patterns are fabulous. The Gettysburg Sun is so different – I’m dying to make it. And all the others of course. Wonderful. And who doesn’t love Judie Rothermel?? Thanks for the fabulous giveaway.

    —Sherryl on March 11, 2014
  • I do have a love for Civil War fabrics. I don’t have a large collection in my stash, since I usually shop for what I need and I make most of my quilts for others who have asked for specifics. I have made one Civil War Era quilt. It is a small quilt from a class I took at a quilt shop in MN, in early 2005. It uses Jo Morten fabrics and I think it was Little Women.It has a permanent place of honor on my kitchen table and it gets ooos and ahhhs whenever I have guests. We used "Thangles" to make our half square triangles. I love the colors in it. I had a lot of fun making it. I would love to make a larger quilt out of Civil War reproduction fabrics. I have been collecting patterns for this project. So someday…

    —Pamela Zajicek on March 11, 2014
  • Would love to add these fabrics to my Civil War stash.
    I have made several doll quilts using Civil War fabrics.

    —Phyllis on March 11, 2014
  • I made a scrappy dresden plate quilt with the civil war fabric, and taught a class at our local quilt store in Pocatello, Idaho!

    —Pat Peyton on March 11, 2014
  • I have started to collect Civil War fabrics to make a Civil War quilt in honor of my GGG Grandfather, John G. Lenfest from Union, Maine, who fought at Gettysburg with Joshua Chamberlain. John died in a Confederate prison in 1864. Also for Harriet Patience Dame, a Civil War nurse, from Concord, New Hampshire. She was a great aunt.
    Winning this collection of Civil War fabrics would certainly help.

    —Barbara Forslind on March 11, 2014
  • I haven’t yet made a Civil War quilt but I would love too. I have a hummingbird pattern that would be perfect for the fabrics and would make a beautiful table topper or wall hanging. t was the first quilt pattern I made and I’d love to do it again now that my skills at hand piecing have improved.

    Colleen Gorman on March 11, 2014
  • I think the first Civil War fabric quilt I made was a King size BOM offered by a local quilt shop. I have more quilts in progress with Civil War Reproductions.

    —Suzanne Perry-Potts on March 11, 2014
  • Several years ago, I began a Dear Jane journey which has involved collecting much civil war reproduction fabric. I love the fabrics and the traditional quilts. I have several quilts from my grand mothers and great grandmothers which date at least to the early 1900’s. One quilt pieced by my great grandmother had some patches and a little crazy patch embroidery. I think those old quilts began my love of quilting. when I get caught up on some of my current ufo’s, I plan to stitch miniatures of my grandmother’s quilts. Winning the Marcus fabrics would definitely be a step in the right direction!

    —Jane Smith on March 11, 2014
  • I belong to a quilting mini-group that studies antique quilts and civil war quilts are my favorites because I love the colors. I am currently collecting beautiful civil war fabrics to make my first civil war scrap quilt.

    —Judi on March 11, 2014
  • I have just started my first quilt with reproduction fabrics I think I’m hooked!!!!

    —Helene on March 11, 2014
  • I have been collection civil war fat quarters for several years now. I love the colors and patterns and the appeal of making something historically accurate. I gives me a feeling of connecting with a time in history when our country was in peril but people joined forces to do whatever they could to help the cause. Men sacrificing their lives and the women doing all they could to make the soldiers’ lives more comfortable.

    —Joan Brown on March 11, 2014
  • The fabric is so beautiful. I have never worked with it before but I would love to. I have always been fascinated by the Civil War. I have taken one quilting class and I am still learning. I did end up making a sampler quilt which I gave to my husband. Thank you for giving us the opportunity to win these beautiful gifts.

    Sincerrely,
    Kathy Durr

    —Kathy Durr on March 11, 2014
  • I would add it to my stash to make a charm quilt

    —MaryMar on March 11, 2014
  • I have been listening to Jennifer Chiaveri’s ‘Elm Creek Quilters’ series of audio books that have inspired me to piece a log cabin quilt top. The author discusses various patterns, fabrics and blocks. I sought out Civil War reproduction fabrics to accompany during the fourth and fifth book in the series.
    I would love to win this bundle so that I could prepare a project for my students to piece and quilt.
    Cheers,
    Kathleen

    —Kathleen Mannion on March 11, 2014
  • My great, great grandfather fought in the Civil War and when I found out that my cousin had his bed from that era, it seemed fitting to make a Sampler Quilt using Civil War reproduction fabrics.

    —Ann B on March 11, 2014
  • I make small quilts for donation. One way is to auction at our guild’s Small Quilt Auction during our guild show.

    —Ana Sweet on March 11, 2014
  • I have not made a quilt with reproduction fabrics, but this book and this fabric are certainly inspiring me to create one! I love the muted colors and old fashioned prints. Thanks for the chance to win.

    —Pam on March 11, 2014
  • I absolutely love civil war reproduction fabrics and use them to make the Home of the Brave quilts for the families of our states’ fallen soldiers from the Iraq and Afghanistan wars. I m saving the scraps from those blocks (all 300 quilts worth and counting at this point in time) to make some of the past years BOM civil war legacy quilts. I just love scrap quilts!

    —Sue on March 11, 2014
  • I have been loving civil war patterns and fabrics but have not made a quilt yet. My cousin made some and they are eye candy!!! I want to make one real soon. Winning this fabric and book would be just the nudge I need! Thanks for the opportunity to win!

    —Kathy M Boice on March 11, 2014
  • While I love the look of CW fabrics, I have never actually used them. If I won them, I would give them to my best friend who does the most beautiful hand stitched small wall quilts. If I am lucky enough to win them, she might actually make something for my walls.

    —Lena Truitt on March 11, 2014
  • I am drawn to dark reds and brown tones. I think it’s because I’m a Johnny Reb at heart.

    —Deanna Sue Adams on March 11, 2014
  • These are the fabrics and quilts that sing to me!

    —Judy on March 11, 2014
  • I wore dresses made from feed sacks and slept under quilts made from the 1930s and 1940s fabrics. The period fabrics are my all time favorites for quilting of any kind. My g g grandmother told me a little about growing up during the civil war days (she was 108 and I was 14 when she passed) The Civil War fabrics remind me of some of the stories she told of the war and of the Indians. It would please me immensely to win this but I will congratulate anyone who does win it. Thank you for the giveaway.

    —Sharon on March 11, 2014
  • I really love those Civil War fabrics, and find myself drawn to Barbara Brackman’s patterns. The colors and hues are so rich.
    It would be so wonderful to win some of these fabrics for my stash!
    Thanks so much.

  • i make large and small quilts with civil war fabric, i just love using them in traditional ways and an occasional nontraditional too. love judie’s fabric and olde sturbridge village was a favorite spot to visit when i attended a nearby camp.

    grace thorne on March 11, 2014
  • I have not made anything with reproduction fabric but would like to try one of these patterns with the fabric pack.

    Betty drake on March 11, 2014
  • I have made a civil war quilt for my grandson which I will give to him
    this June upon his graduation from High school. He can take it with him when he enters collage this fall. Since I showed this to some friends at our church sewing group I have been asked to make one for our Christmas bazaar raffle. The women loved the civil war fabrics and the simple design of the quilt.

    —Mary Ann Holl on March 11, 2014
  • What a legacy of quilts you have reproduced! These fabrics just beg to be quilted! Thanks for the chance to win them. Civil War quilts are what got me started down this road to quilting.

    —Charlie DiSante on March 11, 2014
  • I haven’t had the opportunity to use repro fabrics but I love, love, love them. My goal is to make a court house steps quilt this summer (hopefully I won’t be inundated with baby quilt requests again this summer).

    —Janice on March 11, 2014
  • I have used civil war fabrics to make a sampler with the blocks that were in Eleanor Burn’s Underground Railroad book. I am always looking for more fabrics of that era. I hope I win

    —Betty Sylvia on March 11, 2014
  • I am collecting enough fabric to do the Dear Jane quilt. I want to do each block with a different fabric so that no 2 blocks are alike as in the book. I have to hunt far and wide to find civil war fabrics as the quilt shops in the Northwest don’t carry much of these kinds.

    I have done a machine emboridered quilt by Anita Goodesigns called Homestead with some of my civil war fabrics which included machine applique along with emboidery designs in each block. Love the way this quilt turned out.

    —Cheri Gibbs on March 11, 2014
  • I love traditional patterns with civil war fabrics. Carol and Marcus Fabrics is like a marriage together. I’d love the opportunity to make more. Thank you.

    —helen freese on March 11, 2014
  • I haven’t tried civil war reproduction fabrics, but I love making small quilts. These quilts are beautiful. Thanks for the chance to win such a wonderful gift!

    —Karen Watkins on March 11, 2014
  • I have not yet used Civil War Reproduction fabrics, but having just received my copy of Civil War Legacies II, I can’t wait to use them on one of the gorgeous quilts in the book. I would use the fabric to make the Lilies for Connie quilt.
    Hope I win! Thanks so much for this giveaway!

    —Karen on March 11, 2014
  • I purchased some civil war fat qts at a quilt show last year, but have not found a pattern that speaks to me yet. I’m fairly new to quilting but love the homeyness of the civil war fabrics. I appreciate the chance to win this great book and fabric. Thank you.

    —Kathy Hancock on March 11, 2014
  • I have so far made two king size quilts, several lap quilts and a miniature from CW era repros. I have all the blocks made from Barbara Brackman’s Block of the Week in 2011, the setting blocks will turn it into another king-size quilt.

    I have several more projects in various stages of designing, cutting and sewing – all from Civil War era repros. Two are king size quilts, the others are throws and a wall-hanging. I love making the large quilts, although quilting them on a domestic machine is challenging at the beginning, in the center of the quilt.

  • I am a fairly new quilter and I really love the Civil War reproduction fabrics. This is the first time that I have seen these patterns. I absolutely love them. Already planning my next quilt.

    —Kelly Williams on March 11, 2014
  • I joined a Civil War Sewing Circle group (didn’t think I liked Civil War prints) and started sorting my fabrics. Oh my, I had more Civil War type fabrics than I though. Have fallen in love with the patterns of the fabric and can’t get enough. Would love to win this special prize.

    —Tammy E on March 11, 2014
  • I am currently working on a paper-pieced quilt I found in the ENGLISH PAPER PIECING book and the pattern is called "Just Judie" because a friend of hers had been collecting Judie’s prints for quite a while and she came up with this pattern made with 5″ hexagons and 2″ (I think) diamonds. I would truly love to have (but winning them would be wonderful) some more Judie prints to add to this quilt as I also want it to be made with a great deal of varied civil war era prints.

    —Ruth Weippert on March 11, 2014

These civil war patterns would be great for just about everything I have in mind from quilts to table settings to teddy bears. The imagination and possibilities are endless.

  • I first became attracted to civil war prints when, my Great Aunt gave me a quilt that my Great Great Grandmother pieced and my Great Grandmother finished up by quilting. I was fortunate to be involved with the hosting of the American Quilt Study Group in Oct 2003 held in Dallas, TX. The wonderful quilters that were there made the fabrics and quilts presented come to life for me. Using the wonderful Civil War Prints that are currently available, I made a Miniature Feathered Star, and I am currently working on a scrappy queen sized Quilt, paper pieced pattern. I am with totally thrilled with the interaction of my fabrics. Some of them are so quirky and full of personality. Thanks for the opportunity to collect some more!

    —Debbie Tribble on March 11, 2014
  • After years of quilting and looking for my niche, I finally discovered the beauty of civil war quilts. All of my quilts I work on are done in the beauty of reproduction fabrics. I just can’t seem to get enough of them and get so excited when a new line comes out dreaming of how to use them. I am so glad Marcus works with so many talented designers to bring these lines to me to work with. Keep up the good work. Mary

    JESSIE EDWARDS on March 11, 2014

I feel I need to do more research before embarking on that adventure. Thanks so much for more information and resources about CW-era quilting! Love it!

We have two wonderful CW themed fabric shops near where I live (Okay, so one is 45 minutes and the other almost 2 hours away) and I love to see what some of the old quilts might have looked like when they were new.

  • I love the civil war quilts and fabrics. We collect all the 1800’s quilts we can find no matter the condition and there are several that have been so neglected and or well worn and I still love their beauty and history. I have several that I am working to duplicate/recreate because they are such works of beauty and the fabrics available now are just gorgeous!! I have a Dear Jane and civil war diary quilt. I am not a master quilter and will probably never be able to devote all the time I would like to quilting due to kids and work but if I could I would do it 24/7. our oldest DATED quilt is dated 1836 and it is just amazing knowing I am holding something that was made with such love and care and to think I can enjoy it and create such wonderful works of creation with all that is available today… I am truly blessed and must be in heaven. I love the fabrics!!!

    —Wendy on March 11, 2014
  • I’m haven’t made anything with them yet; but, they are a want! I would love to make a lap throw for by my antique secretary! They would go beautiful together. I would love to win a copy of this book!!!

  • I am new to quilting, although I have sewn most of my life. I am now retired so I have lots of time to quilt. I have a grandson-in-law that does Civil War Re-enacting and I want to make him a quilt for Christmas. But when I give it to him I am sure his whole outfit will want one. Looks like I will have my work for the next few years. My great great grandfather fought for the south and was in the battle of Gettysburg and several other major battles. I think I will make a quilt for my son, and embroider his great, great, great grandfathers name birth-date/death, and the battles and dates on it.

    —Betty on March 11, 2014
  • "Have you discovered Civil War reproduction fabric? What kind of quilts do you make with it?"

    I am aware of the Civil War reproduction fabrics at my local fabric store: Quilt Emporium in Woodland HIlls. I have yet to settle down and utilize them to make quilt/bags …that’s what I want to make tote bags with a civil war motif…theme.

    thanks you

    lorraine m on March 11, 2014
  • I have been collecting Civil War reproduction fabric since I bought an applique quilt block dated from the late 1840s. The block has turkey red calico and over-dyed green leaves and stems. The block is beautiful! How could I not fall in love with Civil War fabric? I use my fabric for pieced tops and applique. I am now working on a hand-pieced mosaic design of Civil War fabric. I always need more fabric. I don’t own enough to stock a store yet.

    —Judy Maggio on March 11, 2014

  • Living in Illinois, the Land of Lincoln, I grew up with little brothers who loved history and played Civil War with their friends well into their teens! They knew all the Generals and battles! So, when i became interested in quilting, my interest immediately went to the beautiful civil war quilts and fabrics. I’ve made my grown up brothers a civil war quilt and lap quilts. Great memories, history and beautiful quilts, not to mention the fun I had making them!

    —Marcia Sargent on March 11, 2014
  • I’ve just begun seriously considering Civil War fabrics and I must say I really like the bundle you’ve shown. I would definitely start with small quilts. They are very cute, but look challenging. It would be fun to try!

    —CarolAnn H on March 11, 2014
  • I started making small and miniature quilts first, then progressed to making throw and bed size quilts. Now I’ve come back around to making small quilts again because there just isn’t time to make all the quilt designs I love. I use all fabrics and most of my smalls are scrappy. Would just love to get Carol’s new book of quilt inspiration…and Marcus’ fabric to make the quilts. Thank you for the generous giveaway.

    —Sharon A. on March 11, 2014

    Thank you.

    —Ann Elliott on March 11, 2014
  • Yes, I discovered Civil War fabrics from a friend and shop owner. I was tired of 30’s and everyone says how "dull" they are but OMG she had some glorius oranges, purples, and the most fabulous Christmas prints!
    The best part about discovering the fabric is my friend is very well informed on the history of the colors and prints, I love history and she is a wealth of information.
    I like the Civil War Quilt books that have a lot of the history in it.
    Thanks and I would love to win this collection ad book!

    —Teri on March 11, 2014
  • A couple of years ago we attended a block of the month for civil war. At the end of the 12 months I was able to put together a civil war quilt in a star design for my son that was moving to be with his dad. It was a great quilt for him since he is a history buff. He is back home now graduating this year and has his quilt on his bed for every night and loves it.

    —Robin Johnson on March 11, 2014
  • BEAUTIFUL FABRICS !!! REPROS ARE PART OF QUILTING I LOVE MOST

    —JANET MALONE on March 11, 2014
  • Ever since I discovered my great-grandmother’s own quilts from the Civil War era, some from 1858 to 1869, I have treasured them, the colors and designs are so evocative. I loved the reproduction fabrics when I first saw them. I have made many quilts and have done well in shows but have not yet made a Civil War reproduction. These Marcus fabrics are perfect, they are so much like my great-grandmother’s, it seems time has stood still. What a great treat it would be to see if I could duplicate her skill and sense of beauty and design, such a challenge and delight. Of course, Carol’s book would be a wonderful bonus, keeping fingers crossed (a little hard to sew this way), thanks so much for the chance, yours, Lurline Jennings, Banning, California.

    —Marilyn Morris on March 11, 2014
  • Love the idea of minature Civil War quilts. fabric is beautiful.

    —Judy Y on March 11, 2014
  • Thank you for the offer! I’ve had 19th century reproduction fabrics for 20 years (not just Civil War-era, but also the decades before and after). I find the prints work well in most traditional pieced blocks.

    I am currently reading Homefront and Battlefield, the book/catalog accompanying the exhibit of the same name. https://www.nyhistory.org/exhibitions/homefront-battlefield-quilts-context-civil-war
    I’m savoring every word and picture!

    —Annette Byrd on March 11, 2014
  • I’m just now beginning to get into the civil war quilt styles. I find them more to my liking than the modern quilt styles. The book has appears to have some great patterns in it that I would love to try and the fabric would be an added bonus.

    —Lyn Harris on March 11, 2014
  • My mother got me interested in quilting. We would do 2 quilts of the same patterns for each of us. My mother would pick out dozens of different piece of material and iron them all, I would do the cutting, after we decided on a quilt. Then I would sew the pieces together and my mother would iron each seam just so and return the piece to me to sew on another piece or two and give it back to her to once again iron. This would go on and on each evening until we had a finished quilt made out of old curtains, clothing, bedspreads and oh yes a few new pieces we had purchased (but not many). This is how her grandmother taught her and in return she taught me. Now if I can just get the hand quilting down pat I can truly make a Civil War quilt with the Marcus material I hope to win with any luck. Thank you.

    Sandra Kelley on March 11, 2014
  • I like the "Hat Pins" quilt shown in the newsletter. I’ve yet to work with Civil War prints, sure would love to! Thanks!

    —Wanda Cardwell on March 11, 2014
  • I love any of the historical quilts and I try to reproduce them as close as possible. One quilt in particular I used scissors to cut out the pieces, hand pieced, hand quilted and put the binding on by hand so that I could totally experience what it was like to be a quilter back then. It was made of soft pinks and browns, still one of my favorite quilting memories.

    —Christina O'Neill on March 11, 2014
  • We’re fortunate to have a wonderful LQS that carries beautiful reproduction fabrics. Can’t walk in without picking up an assortment of FQs, at the least. There’s just something special about a scrap quilt made with repro shirtings and fabrics. Thanks for the opportunity to win Carol’s latest book and some beautiful CWF!

    —Mary M. on March 11, 2014

    —Diane Linker on March 11, 2014
  • I discovered reproduction fabric when I stumbled across Barbara Brackman’s blog and her directions for making a Civil War quilt. I was fascinated by the stories she told and couldn’t wait to shop for reproduction fabric. I was suprised at how much of this fabric was in the stores much of it manufactured by Marcus. It is lovely fabric and I look forward to making another Civil War quilt with it.

    —Jill Ames on March 11, 2014

    —Joan Horton on March 11, 2014
  • I have not yet made a Civil War quilt but am hoping to win this fabric. It will be my motivation to make one.

    —Diane Gilbert on March 11, 2014
  • I am addicted to repro fabrics. There is just something about the colors and prints that the quilts and things made from them give a feeling of warmth, comfort and home. I just finished a 30 block sampler quilt with a matching appliqued wall hanging and am now in the process of using the left over fabrics to make a scrappy lap quilt. To have this book would be such a great resource and coupled with more fabrics would be heaven. My stash of reproduction fabrics has been severely depleted of late.lp

  • I love Civil War reproduction prints. When you use them in quilts with small pieces and lots of contrast, the simplicity of the prints really makes a statement. Thank you for a chance to win!

    —Donna Teeter on March 11, 2014
  • I am in love with civil war fabrics. I have been collecting them for a number of years, waiting for the right project. Right now I am using them in a free BOM offered by Just Takes 2, they are recreating the Benjamin Biggs quilt. As I have just finished a red and green baltimore style quilt, I thought I needed some other colour in my life and a chance to use these beautiful fabrics, loving them!

    —Edie Williams on March 11, 2014
  • I am in love with these fabrics and the new book. I like to make wall hangings for my husband who is a history buff. He loves the civil war fabric as much as I do.

    —Marsha Savage on March 11, 2014
  • I am newly finding out about the Civil War reproduction fabrics, and I think they are beautiful! I would love to win this giveaway, and I would love to make a pattern common to that era.

    —Barbara Pricola on March 11, 2014
  • I have been collecting Civil War reproduction fabrics whenever I visit quilt shops and I have a few ideas for patterns. Carol’s book looks like it will provide lots of inspiration!

    —Rosemary Brown on March 11, 2014
  • My son and his wife gave me a roll of 18 quarters from the "Alice Putman" range when we visited them in Calgary in 2012. I had not used any before but really enjoyed making my quilt when I got home. There’s not a lot available here in S.Africa and what there is, is very pricey! Would love to make more.

    —Hazelmay Duncan on March 11, 2014
  • I have just discovered Civil War reproduction fabrics and cannot wait to show them to my mother who just asked me about making a new quilt for her bed but didn’t know what pattern to use! I think she will love these Civil War Repros!!

    Kathy on March 11, 2014
  • I am making Civil War era reproduction quilts. I am just fascinated with the stories and history behind them.

    —Joyce Mitchell on March 11, 2014

    —Michelle B on March 11, 2014
  • I have always been drawn to the Civil War and the reproduction fabrics. I have Carol’s first book and it’s one of my favorites!
    Can’t wait to get her newest book.
    Thank you!

    —Stephanie S. on March 11, 2014
  • I like to make traditional quilts using Civil War fabrics. Recently I made a snowball and four patch using Lasting Legacies fabric from Connecting Threads. It was easy, yet felt like a nineteenth century quilt.

    —Marshabo on March 11, 2014
  • My first introduction to Civil War fabrics was a class I took using Eleanor Burns’ book on the Underground Railroad, and I was hooked from that day to this. I love the subdued colors and how I can introduce the different fabrics into anything I’m working on and have them blend in with any pattern.

    —elizabeth conway on March 11, 2014
  • HELLO,oh some of my very favorites!
    Thanks for sharing!

    —LINDA on March 11, 2014
  • I’ve been working on a Civil War-based quilt off and on for nearly four years now – and collecting Civil War fabric for much longer than that! I actually collected the fabric before realizing it was called "Civil War" or "Reproduction" fabric – it was just something I was always drawn to.

    I would love to win the book and the bundle – BOY, would I have fun with those two!! Thanks for the awesome giveaway!!

    —Barbara McDonald on March 11, 2014
  • I have discovered Civil War reproduction fabric and have about 6 three yard pieces but can’t find a pattern. All the fabrics are dark so if I win the fabric and the e-Book, I am sure I could make a beautiful quilt.

    —Dianne Reed on March 11, 2014
  • I have loved all little doll quilts as they are small; I have yet to make anything with Civil War fabrics because I am still thrilled with the 1930’s reproduction fabrics. But, seeing these little doll quilts, I am willing to get into the mode of using Civil War fabrics now in my quilting!

    Vickie on March 11, 2014
  • I love Carol’s patterns! I bought her Civil War Legacies book as soon as it was published! And I will #2 also! Judie’s fabrics are gorgeous and as always will be a favorite! I have been making Civil War quilts for about 15 years and will never stop!!

    —Sydney H on March 11, 2014
  • About every third quilt I make is from civil war repro fabric. I keep the repro fabrics in our guest bedroom cabinet though when I make scrap quilts they get mixed in with moderns, brights and batiks!

    Siobhan on March 11, 2014
  • I have some reproduction fabric that is so beautiful I haven’t cut into it yet. What’s fun about the Civil War quilts and blocks is that I learn so much American history from them. I love that about quilting.

    —Joanna on March 11, 2014
  • My only experience with using Civil War reproduction fabrics is a small wall hanging from a kit. The pattern is lone star. It was more difficult than I thought it would be to make such a small lone star quilt, but well worth the effort. I would love to do more with Civil War patterns and fabrics.

    —Theresa on March 11, 2014
  • I LOVE civil war fabrics. I enjoyed Carol’s first book and am looking forward to the next!.. What a great giveaway!

    —Chris Galligan on March 11, 2014
  • Oh yes I have discovered reproduction fabric – Carol Hopkins size quilts and maybe up to 52″ sq is something I can handle. Got drawn into the civil war fabrics because my bff is a perfectionist – purist with quilt designs and fabrics from the civil war era. Have Carol’s other Civil War Legacy book.

    —Gale on March 11, 2014
  • I don’t have any reproduction fabric – but looking at these quilts sure makes me want to get some!

    —Darlene B on March 11, 2014
  • As a relatively new quilter this Civil War fabric and patterns intrigue me. I would love to make a quilt like one of Carol’s. Thanks for the chance to win..

    —Susan Paxton on March 11, 2014
  • I am always drawn to the Civil War reproduction fabrics. I also enjoy the traditional Civil War patterns, but I would like to try these fabrics in a more modern quilt…just to try something different!

    —Janet on March 11, 2014
  • I was fortunate enough to acquire a wealth of Civil War fabric from a friend. It’s mesmerizing. Just started on two little ones as samples for my binding class. I think I’ll keep them!

    —Patricia Hersl on March 11, 2014
  • I have recently retired from teaching and one of my past students continually asked me how it was during the Civil War. He delighted in telling others that I was there to see it in person. So, for his graduation present I made him a Civil War Quilt. I love the 1860s fabrics. They reach out to grab me as I pass by. Currently, I am collecting fabrics to complete a Civil War Hummingbird quilt. Everywhere I go I search for just the right fabrics to complete this quilt.

    —Judy Miller on March 11, 2014

  • I am using some civil war reproduction fabric in my Dear Jane quilt, as well as I did a B. O. M., from a local quilt shop that was civil war reproduction fabrics. They are fun to work with.

    —Edie on March 11, 2014
  • Until recently, I didn’t pay much attention to Civil War reproduction fabrics, but I’ve been seeing more and more quilts made from it. So . . . I haven’t made anything from it yet, but it’s now on my to-do list!

    —Louise on March 11, 2014
  • I have bought lots of civil war fabrics to make a quilt but decided the pattern I was going to make isn’t for me. I now can’t decide what to make. The fabrics are all washed and waiting patiently for me. It’s only been about 4 years! Thanks for the lovely giveaway.

    Christine M on March 11, 2014
  • I curated a quilt show at our local historical society last year. Most of the quilts were from the Civil War era. There were so many fantastic quilts I didn’t know which I wanted to make first. I settled on a pattern called Scotch Plaid Variation. The original was hand pieced and quilted and made from fabric from the Philadelphia Centennial c1876. I created a pattern as I made the quilt using today’s rotary cutting & piecing techniques. Although I would not call my design a reproduction it is an adaptation of the original. There were fabrics I would never have picked for the background, such as gingham & pin dot, but I followed the original as closely as I could. Luckily I have a stash of reproduction fabrics I could draw from. I am now in the process of deciding which quilt to reproduce next.

    —Stephanie on March 11, 2014
  • Love the patterns and fabric. Being fairly new to quilting I would love to be the winner of this give a way. It would be a wonderful place to start.

    —Lisa on March 11, 2014

  • I love to make simple four patch and nine patch squares with civil war fabrics and then when possible add a soft kids print so that I can donate the quilt to local hospitals and our local children’s cancer hospital…I use the softer and not so dark prints..they work well with soft teddy bear prints and will grow with the kids…

    —Rhonda on March 11, 2014
  • I have not discovered civil war fabrics but would love to make a quilt with them. thanks for a chance.

    Carrie P. on March 11, 2014

    —Diana Cruz on March 11, 2014
  • With way over 300 :'( folks already commenting I can’t think up something new. Love the quilts and patterns! Thanks for giving us a Chance.

    —Jean Levins on March 11, 2014
  • I love the history behind the blocks. Like Burgoyne surrounded, the pattern makes more sense when you know what the armed forces were doing against each other.

    —Meghan O'Connor on March 11, 2014
  • I joined a quilt history group a few years ago and learned much about the Civil War, especially women’s role and their lives during that time period. I love repro fabrics. My favorite quilts to make from repro fabric are scrappy quilts with blocks that would have been used in that time period.

    Lynnita on March 11, 2014
  • I love to use my civil war fabrics to make table runners and toppers. This is a wonderful book and the fabrics are luscious!

    —Jackie on March 11, 2014
  • Each person in our guild is starting to make a civil war quilt. I am loving this fabric and patterns. This will be my first civil war quilt. I am so excited about making this quilt and I will be making more. I love American history!

    sally dominiak on March 11, 2014
  • Mostly I make scrap quilts. I have so many scraps that management can be a problem! I love Civil War reproductions but I also love brights and then of course there are Batiks. I guess I just like it all!

    —Ellie on March 11, 2014
  • Love love love all reproduction fabrics.Judie’s Aunt Gracie line reminds me of the two Grandmother’s flower garden quilts I have that my Grandmother made, their warmth and love just reaches out to me.
    When I was quite young my father took me to Gettysburg to view the battlefields there. He told me that the ground on which Pickett’s Charge took place was the MOST HALLOWED ground in America because everyone who fought and died there were Americans. This started a little girl’s love for the Civil War and all things connected with it.
    Thank you for the book and the fabric line .

    —Davie Harrington on March 11, 2014
  • I have been collecting some Civil War fabrics over the past year and am just waiting for inspiration (in the form of a pattern) to strike! I love the colors in the fabrics and the exquisite designs. Perhaps this book has just what I’ve been looking for!

    Susan Mulvihill on March 11, 2014
  • I’m a civil war repro fabric nut! It’s my favorite. And naturally I like to make the patterns indicative of the time period. I collect books and information about 19th century quilts. What attracts me in particular to the fabrics of the civil war era is the peculiar designs. Several years ago I would have told you it’s the ugliest fabric I’ve seen and wouldn’t have had a second thought of purchasing any. But now…..well I LOVE them and think they make the most beautiful traditional pattern quilts.

    —anndee botta on March 11, 2014
  • I made my first Civil war era quilt from scraps from my daughter-in-laws Civil War repro dresses which I had made for her.

    —Judy on March 11, 2014

    —Lee on March 11, 2014
  • I would make Kriss Kross Applesauce, a pattern designed by a local long arm quilter and all-around nice person.

  • I have just recently discovered the beauty and uniqueness of Civil War fabrics. I don’t even have a clue as to how to get my hands on some! I would love to make a guest bedroom quilt with them, though.

    —Terry on March 11, 2014
  • I have a few pieces of civil war fabric from the quilting shop I go to. These look like beautiful colors. Looks like some great patterns in the book. I went to a quilt show a few years ago and the antique quilts on display were civil war quilts. Thanks for the chance to win.

  • I discovered civil war reproduction fabrics when I started my Dear Jane quilt in 2000. I finally finished my quilt (all 169 blocks, 52 triangles, 4 corner triangles and a scalloped border) in 2009 and called it "My Journey With Jane". I loved working with the civil war reproduction fabrics!

  • I love to work with civil war reproduction, Judy’s are the best

    —Becky LeClere on March 11, 2014
  • I never met a piece of Civil War reproduction fabric I didn’t like, even love. I use the patterns from that era also. I was told by a fabric rep that they are no longer in style. I should move on. Well, antiques and heritage are NEVER out of style. I did not inherit any family heirlooms, so I’m making my own! I can always have room for more NEW repro fabric and patterns.

    —Pat Mosley on March 11, 2014
  • I don’t have any civil war repro fabrics. If I win, I would make a sampler quilt with them.

  • I have made a few large quilts with Civil War reproduction fabrics in the past and have now shifted my focus to smaller quilts and placemats.

    —Bonnie Goodrich on March 11, 2014
  • I discovered CW fabrics about 2 years ago when I saw a pattern "Second Hand Clothes" done in them. I started buying them and then I saw a book on the Dear Jane quilt and fell in love with it. I have had fun learning the differences in the pre- and post- CW fabrics and hope to continue collecting them so I can make my own Dear Jane quilt. I think Judie Rothermel’s “Enduring Legacy” line is gorgeous and can’t wait to get a copy of Carol Hopkins’ Civil War Legacies II book!

    —Ila Harris on March 11, 2014

    —Tanya on March 11, 2014
  • I discovered civil war fabrics about three years ago and adore the ‘mutedness’ of them. I love to make scrappy quilts from them, and my favourite civil war quilt is a king sized bed quilt with a huge range of fabrics (of course, I’d only just found civil war fabrics, so I had to buy small amounts of heaps of fabrics to get the look I wanted!) The lengths quilters will go to!

    —Cynthia Green on March 11, 2014
  • I haven’t had a chance to make any quilts with Civil War fabric yet, and I sure would like to win this fabric bundle and ebook. I think my Mom let me have a quilt made with Civil War fabrics when I was a kid in the 60’s. I remember these colors and small pieces in the quilt. I don’t remember any pattern, but it was a very large quilt. I took it everywhere until it disintegrated.

  • I am currently working on a quilt with Civil War Reproductions. It has the Union/Southern flags, Abraham Lincoln, writings of the Gettsburg address and many more moments of the Civil War. I have a great interest in this war as one of my ancestors had fought in this war. He made it through. I love the fabrics,their colors and have the feel of a Civil War quilt. It is very nice. Thank you.

    —Dorothy Hoopes on March 11, 2014
  • I have admired the Civil War fabrics for many years. They are so beautiful.

Thank you so much for the chance to win your generous giveaway today.

    —Muriel Champagne on March 11, 2014

What a great way to teach her with Civil War fabric!

    —Debi on March 11, 2014

  • I enjoy researching the Civil War era and the soldiers who were from our community. So far I have made 18 Civil War soldier quilts for my family and friends, including 3 donated to organizations. I really like working with Civil War reproduction fabric. My sister and I are making Civil War quilts/wall hangings for a Civil War program. We would love to have new fabrics to enhance our quilting project, and also new patterns to make! Thank you.

    —Fran H on March 11, 2014
  • I use Civil War reproduction in almost all of the quilts that I make. I love small quilts and decorate my home with them- using them on the wall, on tables and even on the floor under a basket or ceramic piece. I love the the homey feeling that I have when I use them. They make me happy and help my home to be welcoming.
    Thank you for the chance to win!

    —Lona Long on March 11, 2014
  • I haven’t made anything with Civil War reproduction fabric, but I have admired it in shops and would love to try using it. I love the combination of designs and colors which represent this era.

    —Michele Van Epps on March 11, 2014
  • Ever since I first laid my eyes on Civil War and Reproduction fabrics, I have been hooked. I especially am fond of the civil war fabrics produced by MarcusFabrics. The colors seem to be a more realistic representation of the fabrics found in that era. Thank you so much for providing us with all these wonderful fabrics. I am excited to see these new fabrics in person and look forward to quilting with them. I recently viewed the quilt pattern Enduring Love and would be thrilled to win some of the fabrics to get me started in making it. Thanks again for everything you all do to contribute to keeping quilting alive and thriving.

    —Sheri Kunrath-Barnes on March 11, 2014
  • I fell in love with Civil War Reproduction fabric about 8 years ago! I think I was born in the wrong century. I have a Shoo Fly quilt hanging in my living room that I made with CWR fabrics. All made by hand . . . no rotary cutting & hand pieced & quilted. I have also made log cabin pillows with CWR fabrics & a log cabin quilt started. Would love to win this darling bundle. I would put it to good use. 🙂

    —Gale, Ky quilter on March 11, 2014
  • When I wrote to tell my dear friend Barb (who lives in Festus, Missouri) that my husband was terminally ill, she sent me a box of Civil War fabric with a note saying it was my ‘care package’. This kind and generous offer kept me sane during a very sad and exhausting time. Since then I’ve become hooked and my current ‘WIP’ is an appliqued centre medallion style using only blocks from quilts made prior to the Civil War (as published in various books). I’m also learning a great deal of American history along the way.

    —Veronica Rutter on March 11, 2014

    —Nancy on March 11, 2014

    —Sue Cahill on March 11, 2014
  • I love to use traditional blocks in my quilts with Civil War reproduction fabrics. It reminds me of those women who contributed to the morale of their loved ones who were away in the war, and who used their love of quilting as a way of connecting to those they loved.

    —Carol Edison on March 11, 2014

  • I am sorry to say that I have no Civil War Reproduction fabric in my stash. I have been in awe of this Era since as a young girl sitting in a dark theater and watching Gone With The Wind for the first time. I have just received my first Civil War pattern book and I am hooked. My New Year’s resolution of not buying any more fabric just went out the window and frankly my dear…….

    —Tatania on March 11, 2014

    —Debbie Rogowski on March 11, 2014

    Jeanneke Lambriex on March 11, 2014
  • I love, love, love Civil War reproduction fabrics! I really like the traditional look of them and the colors are beautiful.

    —Wanda on March 11, 2014
  • I have always admired reproduction fabrics, but have never used them yet. The quilts pictured from this book really make me want to make a reproduction quilt. Thanks for the chance to win.

    —Debby on March 11, 2014
  • I’ve been aware of reproduction Civil War materials for quite some time, but have never purchased any because I never saw a pattern that inspired me — until I saw the "Baskets for Betsy" pattern. This surprised me because I have never been fond of basket patterns before. However, the colors, movement, and simplicity of the pattern struck just the right chord with me and opened my eyes to all kinds of possibilities using Civil War reproduction material. The sky’s the limit now! Thank you.

    —Wilma on March 11, 2014
  • I must admit that Civil War reproduction fabrics have not been in my color palette. But as a quilter of only five years they are growing on me. I’d like to try a quilt made with them.

  • So pretty … love these

    —Lisa Flewellyn on March 11, 2014
  • Oh yes! Last summer, as a guest, I attended a Philomath, Oregon Quilt Guild’s meeting because they posted a notice in the local paper that there would be a speaker to share Civil War Quilts. Not knowing anything about this period, I went to the meeting and was thrilled with the samples shown and information shared! I’m HOOKED on the colors of this period. To me, these are "real" quilts!

    Terry SailingKnitter on March 11, 2014
  • I love civil war reproduction fabrics! I’ve made several more traditional quilts for my bed. What I love to make with the reproduction fabrics is miniatures. Love the traditional blocks in miniature form.

    —Ida on March 11, 2014
  • I would love to make some small quilts with this fabric!

    —Mona on March 11, 2014
  • As I think back over my thirty something quilting life, all my quilts with the exception of a few small pieces are traditional. From my first Dresden plate to my current Dressy I have come an enormously long way. I started with hand cutting and stitching. Happily I advanced or rotary and machine work. Every quilt I’ve made, except for one have been given as gifts.

    I always have three quilts going at once. One on the frame, one
    being pieced on the machine, and one being quilted by hand. I try to live up to that old wives rule of ‘six needles a day’. This being six needles loaded with thread and at the ready for quilting.
    You may find me testing a new technique or branching out into art quilting ~ but I always have some wonderful grounding in some beautiful old traditional pattern or in handling antique fabric.
    I’m living in gratitude for our foremothers more and more all the time.

    Nancy Mary Quinn on March 11, 2014
  • One of the local fabric shops here specializes in the historic fabrics, and wool for penny quilts. I have some of their prints, small prints good for blending and having a interesting mix of colors, larger prints seem to be good to bring together several colors not commonly seen in more modern prints, and have great possibilities as a featured print in a quilt, or even wearables such as aprons and jackets.

    —Karen on March 11, 2014
  • I love the civil war quilt fabric. I quilt with them often because they give the quilt a traditional and vintage quilt. My passion is applique, and generally use this fabric. The fabric gives quilts an old-timey look. I would be honored to win this fabric and e-book. I’ll just have to decide which one to make first. Thanks for the wonderful chance.

    —Charlene McCullough on March 11, 2014
  • Yes, I have discovered reproduction fabrics and LOVE them! I teach long arm quilting classes at a large quilt shop and rarely leave at the end of the day without a fat quarter or two or three or more! Because of this "convenience shopping", my reproduction stash has grown quite a bit in the last few years. I am planning on making several quilts, such as a sampler and a few miniatures.

    —Vicki Sprain on March 11, 2014
  • Those look like great quilts, and thus an interesting book.

  • Half of the fun of traveling to guilt shows in Ohio, Pa, Kentucky, Indiana, Illinois has been searching for civil war fabrics and patterns. Unfortunately, we only have one quilt store in Tucson, Az, about 100 miles from where I live, that carries any civil was fabrics. I have made quilts using the English paper piecing method but now I have discovered applique! We are leaving on a trip to Tn and Arkansas soon – can’t wait to find the new Judi Rothermel fabrics and the new Legecies II book!

Unfortunately, we no longer have a quilt shop in our town so I have to go online or drive long distances. Winning would be so great.

    —Judy Rilling on March 11, 2014
  • I’ve just become a quilter, finding a quilt top in a drawer that I had made 25 years ago. I started lessons to learn how to finish it because the original quilt store that helped me make that quilt had gone out of business and I because hooked. I’ve been tailoring my designs to the friends and family who I am making them for. It’s my daughter who had pointed me in the direction of Civil War reproduction fabric quilts. She is in Scotland for a year finishing her MBA in International Marketing. We are from California and when she Skypes and emails me I sense the urgency asking where is her quilt because of the cold, cold temps there. I tried picking quilt fabric but she didn’t like what I had picked so I sent her a bunch of sites so she could pick her own colors and am waiting to hear from her. How amazing it would be if I won and she had an entire range to pick from and it was FREE! Thanks for offering this. I enjoy your articles and pictures. Denyse Rose

    —Denyse Rose on March 11, 2014

    —Rickie L on March 11, 2014

I’ve read the books, toured the battlefields and made reproduction uniforms (for my son) and dresses (for my daughter).

  • I just won a bundle of 12 Civil War fat quarters and I plan on making my very first civil war quilt. I think I’m going to use the Churn dash block, or Hole in the Barn door or Double Wrench. It just seems like it should be one or all of these blocks.

    Am going to give it a try and see what transpires.

I’d be thrilled to have either the book or one of those luscious bundles. Thank you for your wonderful blog. I so enjoy reading it every day.

    Annette Johnston on March 11, 2014

Now they are my personal favorites and what I use in my own bedroom and living room. They just speak to me. I am doing a BOM right now that is all repro. I mostly do full and queen size bed quilts.

    —Kathi Polz on March 11, 2014
  • I have some very old quilts that I believe may contain civil war fabric. Also, all of my g-g-grandfathers were in the civil war (one of them never to return home)so anything civil war is of interest to me. It was a horrible time to be a wife and mother and I don’t believe my g-g-grandmother Elizabeth ever recovered from the loss of her husband.

    —Norma Carter on March 11, 2014
  • On a trip to Charleston SC to see my Navy wife daughter I visited a quilt shop in Summerville..fell in love with civil war fabric and quilts we saw there and at the museums and touring several plantations. I have made one of Carol’s little quilts from a pattern I got there (Emily’s Memories) and am working on a pattern called Charleston with fabric from the same collection. Civil war history has always been my passion and I so enjoy imagining living and quilting during that time. Would love to win this collection and the book! Thanks for the chance.

    —Carla Finley on March 11, 2014
  • I love brights and bolds, but wanted to expand my quilting experiences. I joined a monthly group that hosted a block of the month type program using reproduction fabrics; it was designed to use leftover pieces from the quilter’s stash. Guess what! I had to go shopping since I had no stash of appropriate fabrics – while on vacation, I visited quilt shops and purchased only reproduction fabrics. I love my completed quilt and now have a stash to choose from for another quilt. My friend who only quilts using reproduction fabrics is soooo proud of me!

    —Winona on March 11, 2014

  • Being retired now, with a choice of hobbies – quilting has become my interest. Never tried it before, and from the looks of all the beautiful quilts – I’ve got a lot to learn. The guild in our area makes and donates quilts for CASA, Hospice, Habitat for Humanity, Quilts of Valor and the list goes on. I’m happy to say, that one I made was fondly received. Now on to many more. Civil War fabrics could be used in nearly any adult donation. Thanks for the opportunity to learn and sample new products.

    —Jane on March 11, 2014
  • I started a Dear Jane quilt in 2002 using Civil War reproduction fabrics, mostly in fat quarters. I joined a Dear Jane club at our local quilt shop. It ran for 2-3 years and I worked on it very hard while the club was active. After that it became a UFO. The winter of 2012/13 I finished piecing the triangles. This winter I made it a priority to finish putting it together and I succeeded. Now I’ve sent it to be quilted. In the meantime I have all the left over fabrics to use up. Since I used a different fabric for each block I have 268 fabrics to use up! What better way than in more Civil war patterns.

    —Jeannette Popowich on March 11, 2014
  • Judie Rothermel’s prints are my favorites for civil war type quilts and traditional patterns. I have made several, civil war era patterns am using these prints in more modern quilts as well. There is just no end to the fascination with this era for inspiration for quilts and fabric. I think they will be an enduring classic.

    —Bebe on March 11, 2014

    —Sandy Davis on March 11, 2014
  • I discovered civil war fabrics in a quilt class I took with my sister a few years back,I really enjoyed the hues. Since then, a wall hanging and now a lap quilt I need to make one for our guild.

  • I love the original Civil War Legacies book, and made a small quilt that I gifted I made from it. I use Civil War fabrics for quilts in my own home, and for Home of the Brave quilts (Az state co-coordinator). Most recently I used a Civil War-type collection jelly roll to do a quick Quilt of Valor donation. The deep and muted colors are calming for many, go with lots of different décor styles when gifted, and the small patterns lend themselves to close examination and endless combos.

    —Randi on March 11, 2014
  • I love reproduction fabrics and have made a throw size like one I saw at a quilt show in Raleigh. I would love to have a book of patterns for my leftover fabric. Thanks!

    —Barb Alston on March 11, 2014
  • I absolutely LOVE Civil War reproduction fabric, and have made several quilts from them! Before Christmas, my son texted me a picture of a quilt he and his family saw at Homestead Village, with the text reading simply "can you make this?" It was a sampler quilt with 6 inch blocks out of Civil War reproduction fabrics. He and my daughter in law are building a new house that will look like an old dog run house. Although they both loved the quilt, he sent the picture more in jest! The Judie Rothermel’s fabric will be perfect for the quilt in the picture he sent, that I plan to make as a surprise for them to use in their new house! If I were to win this fabulous fabric, it would be sewn and given to very special people in my life, that would treasure this heirloom way past my time!!

    —Gay Guinn on March 11, 2014
  • I am working on Lilies for Caroline right now. It is my tiny purse "boredom kit". A block fits in a 2″ x 3″ little pouch with a bobbin of thread and a thread cutter. Also, a block of the month version of "Road to Freedom", a sampler of 5″ blocks. Then there’s the Civil War Journals Block of the month, but those are BIG (8″ finished), so I am machine piecing those. I love the Civil War era history.

    —Peg Larson on March 11, 2014

This is the book that I have been anticipating and previewing online for weeks. I looked Saturday at the quilt shop and they didn’t have it yet. I would use the small blocks to make a table runner first. And the fabrics are all like in the book. How pretty that would be!
    If I should win, I would want to start right away!

The underground railroad 2014 block of the month has now had two months and the new weekly block for 2014 will start in April. Reading about what happen during that time and learning about women right to vote has given me a good understanding of the time. It is interesting to see how other now use Civil War fabric, sometimes blocks from that era has also been shown.

This gives the quilt a unique style. My next civil war print quilt will hopefully be a wall hanging possibly a nine patch or hourglass block quilt.

I have been making several quilts from my grandmother’s collection of newspaper blocks.

I love looking at the notes she wrote and feel like she is with me when I am working on these quilts.

  • Years ago, my co-workers gave me a gift certificate to a quilt shop around the corner from our offices. I used that certificate to get started on a Block of the month quilt –"Women’s Voices of the Past" all out of reproduction fabrics. I gave the quilt to my Dad for Christmas, and he proudly used it until his death in 2012.

    —Robin M on March 11, 2014
  • This is the first time I’ve seen them and I’m in love. I’m ready to try one of these. Hard to pick.

    Kat Dennis on March 11, 2014
  • Being a Canadian, my first introduction to the Civil War was during my teens (45 years ago) at the drive-in watching "Gone with the Wind". Who can forget Rhett and Scarlett and the hardships the Civil War introduced to their lives. My quilting passion took me to Paducah, twice, and I visited many vendors that highlighted Civil War Reproduction Fabric…I was hooked and my pocket book stretched. I have at least 100 yards of fabric and have many patterns. I also have 70 Dear Jane blocks completed and my passion has not waned.When I visit the US, I still am not able to walk past a piece of Cheddar Civil War Fabric without buying it…cheddar is so hard to find…and Civil War Fabric in Canada is non existent. There is one cheddar fabric in this give away and I can’t resist it. Please make my day!!!

    —Susan on March 11, 2014
  • Oh I just love these fabrics and patterns! How wonderful it would be to win!

    —Kiska on March 11, 2014
  • Yes I have discovered Civil War reproductions and am working on Carol’s Martin’s Pennies in a double size. I love her first book and am looking forward to the new one! Can always use new fabric for my collection 🙂

    —randie kelley on March 11, 2014
  • Oh my! Love love love the detail in the Civil War repro fabrics.. I still need to make a teeny quilt for some wooden mini furniture..I see some would almost be to scale 🙂

    —Carol on March 11, 2014
  • I used to keep my reproduction fabrics separate from my main stash…now it is my stash and I have a small basket of "other fabrics and scraps" on the floor next to my storage shelves. I make reproduction quilts and love to do old blocks with as many reproduction fabrics as I can. I just finished a queen sized pineapple quilt with piano key borders that has over 100 different reproduction fabrics in it. I have Civil War Legacies and every Judie Rothermel fabric I have been able to lay my hands on!

    —Ann Tascone on March 11, 2014
  • I don’t have a lot of Civil War fabrics, but I do love these quilts – they would all look great in the 30s fabric I do have!

    —Diane on March 11, 2014
  • I like the geometric design of Civil War quilts and the new book has a few fabulous patterns in it that I would love to make and would make one with the Enduring Legacy fabric if I am lucky enough to win it. Thanks for the opportunity.

    —LisaL on March 11, 2014
  • I, too love little quilts and am lucky enough to have an antique doll bed which "needs" small quilts. It looks great with quilts made from reproduction fabrics such as "civil war" prints.

    —Betty on March 11, 2014
  • Love the fabric and pattern Beautiful

    —Pat Richter on March 11, 2014
  • It was because of these older prints that I got into quilting in the first place. I am a history nut and I love the beautiful rich colors, and the stories that they tell because they are so important to the history of our country. The work that Carol Hopkins, Judie Rothermel, Barbra Brackman and others do in recreating and developing "new" old patterns and fabrics helps to keep this era alive. The beautiful fabric assortment that you are giving away would look stunning in a "Dear Friends" quilt which appears in Carol’s second book. I have been wanting to make one of these since I first saw it. Thank you for the opportunity to try to win!

    Lisa

    —Lisa S on March 11, 2014
  • I love vintage style fabrics of all eras. I have some Civil War prints that I am using in an Ohio Star quilt of my own design. I chose the Ohio Star because my husband’s great grandfather fought in the Civil War, and lost an 18 yr old brother in that war after being captured in the south. My qiilt is sort of a memorial to those two men.

    —Pat Henry on March 11, 2014
  • I just completed a king sizes pink and brown Jacob’s Ladder quilt made with Civil War fabrics.

    —Norma Bourgeois on March 11, 2014

    —Nelda Mohr on March 11, 2014
  • I’ve used some Civil War reproduction fabrics in the past and love them so much. I’m use the fabrics to make scrappy quilts which are my favorite type of quilts to make.

    —Linda Webster on March 11, 2014
  • I was introduced to Civil War fabric through a block of the month at my local store. I have come to really like it and have some fabric (but not enough) to make a queen size civil war quilt for my husband. I have probably made 150 quilts but have never made one for my husband. He has decided that he wants one in Civil War fabric.

    Elaine West on March 11, 2014
  • I’ve become passionate about the CW repro fabrics and quilts in the past 3 years – but the real craziness started about a year ago when I started going to a workshop that encourages small quilts, CW fabric… mostly Marcus! I don’t have any of this line yet, tho, and would love to. And I love the first book in this series – can’t wait to add the 2nd to my sewing room library!

    —Janet on March 11, 2014
  • I discovered civil war fabrics a couple years ago and there’s been no turning back. I’ve made several small quilts to hang on my wall and to give as gifts. I’ve purchased every book about civil war quilts I can get my hands on (including Civil War Legacies. I’ve made a bee line straight to the civil war fabric section of every quilt shop I’ve been in. I’ve been building my stash of civil war fabrics. It’s a wonderful obsession.

    Thanks for your great giveaway and the chance to win.

    Victoria Miner on March 11, 2014

    —Marjie Sener on March 11, 2014
  • Like most of you I love reproduction fabrics. Really I’ve never met a fabric I didn’t like! ! I have a long arm and always feel the need to make the bigger the better. I just seem to think you need to fill the space. One of my most favorite quilts was done using civil war reproduction fabrics. We exchanged simple blocks (9 patch & split rail were just two of them) with other ladies from the guild. I of course made and exchanged double as I have a super King bed as do my children. It’s nice to see a small baby quilt once in a while. I love the blocks in the new book so I can see I’m going to be busy for awhile! Thanks for supporting my addictions, fabric and new designs! !

    —Sandy Smith on March 11, 2014
  • I have always been drawn to very traditional quilts and love many of the Civil Wars fabrics. However, I haven’t known just what to do with them before this. This book is not only inspiring, but will help me focus on what to make and HOW to make it! Please make my dreams come true!

    —Sarah Evanko on March 11, 2014

    —Deborah Tell on March 11, 2014
  • I just finished a quilt using Blackford’s Beauty block,
    a Civil War block, using Civil War reproduction fabrics.

    —Emily C on March 11, 2014

I spent an extra week and filled an entire suitcase with reproduction Civil War fabrics that I bought in Gettysburg and the surrounding Amish country! I’m looking forward to adding Carol’s latest book and some new quits to my home.

    —Debi Shultz on March 11, 2014
  • I love the Civil War Reproduction fabrics and, in fact, used them in the first quilt I made after a medically caused layoff from quilting. I made a wonderful "historical" pattern -about twin size. My next one will be a small one to drape over an antique Rocking Horse I own.

    —Laura on March 11, 2014

  • I’d like to make a churn dash with Civil War repro. fabrics.

    —Suzanne on March 11, 2014
  • I love civil war fabrics. I have nearly completed a Dear Jane quilt, made a Zig-Zag quilt, aa well as two block of the month quilts from civil war fabric. The Dear Jane is a charm quilt with no two fabric blocks made of the same fabric (other than the background fabric).

    It is rare for me to use any other fabric (except at Christmas, Halloween, Thanksgiving, summer, helping others etc.) I find civil war fabrics to be particularly striking with scrap quilts.

    —Mary Alice Stockdale on March 11, 2014
  • I have two Civil War quilts pieced, and ready to be finished – Two, because somehow I ended up with two different size blocks – so just continued and made one one size and one the other! My husband is a real Civil War "buff" and so I am finally making a quilt for him! He also is a descendant of a Civil War Soldier, so this willl be a real treat for him! Thank you for this gift to us – you know, quilters can always use more wonderful fabric!

    —Vicky C. on March 11, 2014
  • I love the colors of the Cilvil War materials and I have been wanting to try something new for a long time. I make quilts out of used clothing of every color you can imagine for who ever needs one. It would be the first time for me to use new material if I win!

    —sandra on March 11, 2014
  • I am a very new quilter, and this fabric is new to me – but based on the pictures and descriptions, I would love to work with it.

    —Karen Cohn on March 11, 2014
  • Civil War fabrics are beautiful and I have used them in small projects. I also use them as blenders in more modern quilts.

    —Karen Seitz on March 11, 2014
  • I have actually finished a churn dash quilt with Civil War fabrics, only I did not know that they were Civil War reproductions! When we make quilts with fabrics from the past, it is as if we have entered a time warp. How the lives of women must have been so uncertain during the Civil War, and how they would have agonized over their husbands, sons, and brothers. Quilting with friends must have helped many a woman through this most difficult time. It is good to reflect on the good lives we enjoy and quilting experiences we share giving comfort and beauty just as women did during the Civil War.

    Gail G on March 11, 2014
  • So far I have made small wallhangings with my Civil War fabric. I haven’t collected enough yet for a bigger quilt. Carol’s patterns sure make we want to keep collecting and try out some bigger projects.

    —Mary on March 11, 2014
  • I am making my very first civil war quilt in my quilting class. I am a new quilter, and I was immediately drawn to civil war fabrics and quilts. I have 50 blocks to make, and I am enjoying every frustrating moment! I can’t wait to see the completed quilt top.

    —PatrIcia on March 11, 2014
  • This year in our homeschooling were studying history and The Civil War Period in general. I have gotten one of Kathy’s books called " The Civil War Sewing Circle" and we still needed to find fabrics, so when I saw this I just had to come try to win. My girls 12 and 10 are really looking forward to learning to quilt this year.

    —Jennifer on March 11, 2014
  • I do have some civil war fabrics & have made 3 blocks so far for a "Dear Jane" quilt with some of them. There is a need for lots of variety in the fabrics for a "Dear Jane", so more civil war fabrics could definitely be used!
    I would also love to try some of the patterns in Carol Hopkins book–a miniature could actually get finished in the for-see-able future!

    —Judy Forkner on March 11, 2014

    —WyoDi on March 11, 2014
  • I’ve just discovered the Civil War fabrics and books. It’s funny when you first discover something you want to buy every
    book and fabric. I think I have 6 Civil War books and I saw that the new Legacy II is out. It is on my book list. And the Fabrics are absolutely beautiful. I would love to make another queen size quilt with this fabric and use one on Carol’s beautiful patterns. I’m very excited about learning the history behind the blocks and quilts. A whole new quilting adventure a head. Thank you for a chance to win.

  • I am a newer quilter (who never sewed) and my first quilt was the Underground Railroad. Sadly, I did not know enough about the fabrics to choose civil war fabrics and regret that very much. Although my queen size quilt is quite pretty in its own right, I would love to have the opportunity to quilt with civil war fabrics and patterns. At 60 years of age I finally got bit with the bug to sew and quilting is all I will ever do….well, that and sewing on patches. LOL I love to quilt, which is not something I ever thought would happen. I am so glad to have found your website and will follow gladly. I absolutely adore your work with the civil war fabrics and hope to learn more from you. Thanks for your website! Judi

    I belong to a Civil War Club and we have made a couple of the small quilts out of Carol’s first book Civil War Legacies.
    Would love to fondle the fabrics by Judie Rothermel.

    —mary johnson on March 12, 2014
  • Yes I love Civil war fabrics. I finished sewing a beautiful reproduction quilt with a star of Bethlehem. It took 5 years of hand piecing and I traced the shapes around homemade templates and cut them out with scissors.
    It is beautiful and I love the look of the reproductions, cause most of the ranges will all work with each other regardless of theme or time! Carols book civil war fabrics was a must have the quilts a must do too.

    Simone on March 12, 2014

One of my reproduction was acquired by the Andersonville Prison Museum.

    Jean Warren on March 12, 2014

Now I am looking to start a quilt about the Underground Railroad, with each block depicting a sign used by safe houses for travelers. The Civil War fabric colors and patterns blend in perfectly with my surroundings.

    Betsy on March 12, 2014

    —Carole Plourde on March 12, 2014
  • I am working on a basket quilt based on an antique quilt I saw on Ebay. It is a scrappy one and I’m loving working on it. I have Carol’s first book and love what I’ve seen from the second. It looks like from a quick glance that the quilts are a little more scrappy.
    Joan

    —Joan W on March 12, 2014
  • Traditional patterns with Medallion centers are my favorite type quilts to make. The Civil War and Reproduction fabrics fit the bill perfectly for my style. I like using lots of different fabrics in a quilt (just like our ancestors)and receive great comments on my quilts. I hand and machine piece as well as hand quilt. I have a few favorite long-arm quilters who say they enjoy working on my quilts. The fabric you are offering looks fantastic and if I do not win the book, I will have to buy it!!

    Dena on March 12, 2014

    —Judy Jackson on March 12, 2014
  • I have been immersed in making quilts using Civil War reproduction fabrics for the last two years.

  • Oh, I absolutely love civil war reproduction fabrics – I am just drawn to them. The last quilt I made with reproduction fabrics is called Greystone by Paula Barnes. But it is just so hard cutting into those fabrics!

    —Eva Lyn Williams on March 12, 2014
  • Civil War fabric is not easy to find in the UK but I have some I bought in the US. The quilt I am making is a medallion quilt based on one I saw in a museum in Virginia.

    —Gloria on March 12, 2014
  • I have always been drawn to quilts that have a vintage look to them based on the fabrics that were chosen – I now realize that most of them were civil war fabrics used on traditional blocks. Thanks for the opportunity to win a great package.

    —Lynn on March 12, 2014
  • Good Morning. I was looking at the Civil War fabrics shown, they beautiful!! I haven’t made any quilts with these types of fabrics. I would really like to make a quilt with these fabrics.

    Thanks, Alma Henderson

    —Alma Henderson on March 12, 2014
  • I have used Civil War reproduction fabrics to replicate blocks in the Civil War books (Civil War Legacies being one of them). I’m also exchanging 3″ finished rail fence blocks, using the repro fabrics, with three friends. we are almost finished and should have 180 blocks.

    —Carol Schon on March 12, 2014

    Sylke on March 12, 2014
  • I started off modern/contemporary only. Then I met a quilt shop owner with a passion for Civil War fabric. I ended up buying a HUGE box of civil war FQs and started working with them. As a result the appreciation grew and grew over the years.

    I just "pinned" two quilts on my Pinterest boards that are civil war themed (from Martgingale, coincidentally!). I want to make two versions of one of the quilts — one modern and one in civil war. I’d like to play with the contrast between the two movements.

    Jean F on March 12, 2014
  • I like to make traditional blocks with the civil war reproduction fabrics. These are beautiful!!

    —Linda Guza on March 12, 2014
  • Wow!! I love the Civil War fabrics! I just started looking a the vintage style fabrics and am really pulled to buy all of them. Unfortunately, my income would not cover that. I’ve made some small blocks–for practice with the vintage style fabrics, but would like to try my hand at something a little larger.

    —Barbara Bobbitt on March 12, 2014
  • I love the small quilts! They allow me to use more of my loved scraps. I am working on Martin’s Pennies now. I think it was one of my first quilt pattern and fabric purchases. I still love it as much today as the day it was purchased..

    —Karen P on March 12, 2014
  • I love these fabrics but I tend to make larger quilts, twin, double, queen, even a couple of king size. I guess I am to clumsy for the smaller pieces. Like the idea and may even attempt it some day.

    —Julia on March 12, 2014
  • I love to make small quilts with reproduction fabrics like Carol Hopkins. That way maybe I’ll be able to come close to making all the quilts I want to make!

    —Barb on March 12, 2014

    —Sheila Fernkopf on March 12, 2014
  • I am very interested in Civil War quilts, fabrics and books about the subject since my Great Grandmother was a little girl in the south during the Civil War (Louisiana). I remember her and her stories. I would love to honor her by making a Civil War quilt.

    —Lillian K on March 12, 2014

    —Joanne on March 12, 2014
  • I love not only the fabrics but the old patterns used by women in the past. It is a connection to the past, the history of women. CA

    Carol Ann on March 12, 2014
  • I just finished a king size civil war quilt and enjoyed it. Wouldn’t mind designs for smaller civil war quilts as my husband writes historical books on the Civil War. All the civil war fabrics I used were fun and goreous so would loved the combo of book and fabrics.

    —KATHY SPRUILL on March 12, 2014

    Janne Ellingsen on March 12, 2014
  • i prefer the traditional patterns which could have been made by my ancestors; it gives me a feeling of continuity and sisterhood with my forebears!

    —quilterski on March 12, 2014
  • I love the muted hues and scrumptious patterns of CW fabrics. They really make you think about that period in time and of the history of quilting. For me, there’s nothing that does them justice like the tried and true traditional blocks.

    —Kayt Deans on March 12, 2014
  • My first quilt top was a small quilt (~ 18″ x 22″) made with Civil War fabrics. I finished it earlier this year. I have a several UFO’s that are using Civil War fabrics: a Block of the Month, and 2 signature swaps (have the swapped blocks, with assembly of 1 in-process). There are more ideas swirling in my head.

    —Donna on March 12, 2014
  • These fabrics make me drool. There is something about them that touches the soul. When I see a pattern I can’t wait to make it. Her patterns are so right.

    —Barbara on March 12, 2014
  • Love the patterns Love the fabric. Whether they are small or large they touch our souls. Buy it anyway and get started!!!!!!!!!!!!

    —Barbara on March 12, 2014
  • I was so thrilled when Civil War reproduction fabrics started coming out. I think it was back in the late 90’s and there weren’t a whole lot of them. I keep thinking that they’re going to stop making them anytime now, so I just "have" to keep buying them, just in case! Mostly I make scrappy quilts with them, that way I can use a lot of different ones (which of course, I already have a lot of in my stash!).

    —Susan K. on March 12, 2014
  • I like making mini wall hangings.

    Mara on March 12, 2014

    —Micki on March 12, 2014
  • I love the civil war reproduction fabrics. I got introduced to them through a Thangles project. And making the smaller quilts are just for me. What a great way to enjoy both the fabrics and the smaller quilts–Thanks for sharing!

    —Pam Blake on March 12, 2014
  • Civil war reproduction fabrics are my absolute favorites!! With small quilts I can make even more because I want to make them all and there’s just not enough time!

    —Diana on March 12, 2014
  • A great book of patterns and the fabrics are wonderful also. I want to buy both books, on my wish list! I am currently making the Gettysburg quilt with historical images and the Gettysburg Address.

    —Susan on March 12, 2014
  • Civil War reproduction fabrics are my very favorites! They make up beautifully in large and small quilts–where ever the fabrics are really showcased. The history is fascinating and really makes you feel part of the entire quilting sisterhood.

    —Nancy Shepard-Green on March 12, 2014
  • I have seen the Civil War reproduction fabrics, but I haven’t purchased enough to make a quilt yet.

    —Susan on March 12, 2014
  • I have never been interested in history! That said I started working on my genealogy and low and behold I love history! I found I had several family members in the civil war (as well as other wars).So I started looking at civil war fabrics with interest – thinking of my family’s involvement in the war and the past in general. Now I have to put genealogy and quilting together. Two of the hobbies I love and never have enough time to do. I now have a small collection of civil war repos and i’m looking to expand this stash/inventory (!) and make a quilt that will reflect my family’s past. This fabric and book would definitely make a fantastic start to that quilt. Thanks for reading.

  • I am in the collecting stage of civil war fabrics. The craze has not hit Cheyenne Wyoming yet. As I travel I collect fabric and almost have enough to get started. I love basket pattern from Carol Hopkins!

    —Daenette More on March 12, 2014
  • I have thought about making a quilt based on the Civil War fabric – I think I would like to make one and incorporate a printed image of my great-grandmother as her first husband was in the Civil War. I like the patterns in the book and really like the "Dear Friends" and "Gettysburg Sun" designs. I think the fabric would also be great for making some rag dolls dressed in period outfits.

    —Alice on March 12, 2014
  • I made a queen bed quilt using the Battlefield block from a Billie Lauder book. I would love to win this book and fabric.

    Barbara Bennett on March 12, 2014
  • Oh my gosh, we have so much in common! I love making small quilts with the reproduction fabrics and have a stash that includes a number of designers including Judy. In fact, I guess I enjoy ‘working small’ as I have started a Dear Jane as well.(The blocks are small . . .) And then there is the fact that I am a native Hoosier (now on the west coast) whose name is Carol! I would love to have the new fabrics as well as the new book!

    —Carol C on March 12, 2014

    —Bobbie Hunley on March 13, 2014
  • I love Civil War fabrics for years and my collection is quite huge, but as they say… Behind every quilter is a huge stack of fabric. It’s the fabric I work with most of the time. Especially the fabric designed by Judie Rothermel. I cannot get enough of it.I am absolutely hooked on those tiny patterns and colours.

  • I’m fairly new to quilting and have recently discovered the Civil War Reproduction fabrics. I especially like the blues, and some of the pinks and browns, as well. On another note, I am looking for a really nice raspberry red for a red and white quilt. I have found ancestors that served in the Revolutionary War, the War of 1812, my grandfather served in World War 1, and on both sides of my family were Civil War Veterans, one being a fairly new immigrant. I would love to make a quilt with these Civil War fabrics as way to honor them.

    —Penny M on March 13, 2014
  • I have Carol’s first book and while I wasn’t sure at first about the colours since reading it and looking at it I have fallen in love with the fabrics and patterns.
    Carol’s book is such an easy book to make a quilt from, I am sure who ever wins this book will be loving the patterns and the quilts in this book too.
    Thanks for expanding my horizons with fabric colours and combinations.

    —Mhairi on March 13, 2014
  • Civil War fabrics are my main choice for fabrics. I have made lots of little quilts and love that they can be made so quickly. Plus you can try out new techniques and see if you like them on a small scale before investing in lots of fabric and then getting frustrated. Small quilts make great gifts too!

    Kris S on March 13, 2014
  • At this time I’m making a big quilt from civel war fabric (stars and four patch). Mostly I make small quilts from clad colors because we have animals (cats ans dogs). The cival war fabrics/colors are PERFECT, exactly my tast!!! It is hard to say it in word, it is just a feeling……

    —Gonny Defilet on March 13, 2014
  • I would use the fabric to work on some miniature quilts.

    —Barbara L. on March 13, 2014
  • I love making quilts in reproduction fabrics, mostly small-scale quilts which are a pleasure then to quilt myself. Judie Rothermel has always done fabulous fabric lines.

    —Jean Mosley on March 13, 2014
  • I love making CW looking quilts….my fav projects!

    Sheri Lesh on March 13, 2014
  • I love to use reproduction fabrics in small quilts as it’s a chance to try a new block or quilt. You get to see your idea come to life more quickly. I’ve learned a lot. Judie Rothermel’s fabrics help create the look I like.

    —Connie Johnson on March 13, 2014
  • I love the look of the civil war fabrics and long to make something from them. My daughter’s quilts have to come first, and as yet none of them have chosen the civil war theme (darn it all). My turn is coming soon and these fabrics will give me just the perfect start!

    —Jennifer P on March 13, 2014
  • These are so beautiful!!!! I am new to quilting and there are so many things I want to do!!!! Love to add this beautiful fabric to my projects!!!

    —Kathleen on March 13, 2014
  • My son was a history major in college with a special interest in the Civil War era. His only son is named Lincoln. I would love to make 8 yr. old Lincoln a Civil War replica quilt from these really interesting patterns. I think he might even be interested in learning how certain patterns got their names. I find the historical aspects of quiltmaking as interesting as the process itself.

    —Rosemary Hop on March 13, 2014
  • I pretty much only use Civil War Reproductions for my quilting. I love the historical aspect of quilting, therefore most of my projects are with reproduction fabrics! I love Carol Hopkins’ designs and have most of her patterns and her first Civil War Legacies book and have even made some of the quilts, lol!

    —Barb Geiseman on March 13, 2014
  • I am in the middle of my first quilt using civil war fabrics and I just love the personality they give a quilt. Even as I look at each fabric I can envisage a woman from that era wearing a dress made from it or maybe stitching it into her quilt!

    —Carol Gunn on March 13, 2014
  • love the civil war reproduction fabrics. have made quilts for my "civil war" obsessed hubby. looking forward to making quilts from Carol’s new book as soon as I recover from rotator cuff surgery. Thank you for the chance to win.

    —sharon on March 13, 2014
  • I’d love to do a six sisters quilt pattern using the Civil War fabrics. They are perfect.

    —Cheryl Sammons on March 13, 2014
  • It seems like that I always come back to the Civil War Reproductions and Civil War designs after experimenting with other designs in quilting. There is something about the comfort that comes from these scrappy quilt and the memories that are brought back when experiencing them. I am thrilled that Carol has come out with a second book with the theme of Civil War. Thanks for the opportunity.

    —Becky Herron on March 13, 2014
  • A group of us made Civil War miniatures and met every month to compare and start a new pattern. When the shop closed, we stopped. I miss doing that, and seeing these photos inspired me to get that fabric out again!

    —Georgia Schropfer on March 13, 2014
  • I’ve made several Civil War reproduction quilts with Judie’s fabrics and Paula Barnes designs and fabrics. I’d love to try some of the smaller quilts and Carol’s look wonderful. Thanks for the chance to make "Baskets For Betsy"!

    —Linda K on March 13, 2014
  • OH my heavens! I didn’t think I would like Civil War Quilt patterns but I just love, love, love some of Carol’s designs and use of fabrics. I don’t have any Civil War fabrics but sure have been inspired by looking at these and therefore would LOVE to win these fabrics and Carol’s incredible book on the small quilts. Thank you for this offer.

    —sharon on March 13, 2014
  • Nice book and complimentary fabrics to inspire making the quilts in the book and those of your own.

    —DA Furr on March 13, 2014
  • I too, love Civil War fabrics. I have made a few lap robes and am doing one now from patterns taken from Sanitary Commission Quilts for our Priest who is a real history person. Have made several small quilts, but not with Civil War fabrics. but I will.

    —Lorraine Robertson on March 13, 2014
  • The vast majority of my stash is civil war reproduction. I love to make scrappy quilts with them.

    —Vickie Mills on March 13, 2014
  • How I would love to live in your country with so many opportunities and so many great fabric give aways- To make a quilt from civil war fabrics is one of my dreams- will it come true?

    —May on March 13, 2014
  • For the last couple of years I’ve been making a LOT of small quilts. That’s why I’m so excited to hear about Carol’s new book. The colors of the CW repro fabrics make my heart beat faster whenever I see a beautiful new line – just can’t get enough!

    —Gayle on March 13, 2014
  • Love civil war fabs & Carol’s designs. She always has the most interesting names for her quilts. Scrappy quilts are my favorites – repo fabrics are perfect. "Gettysburg Sun" is must-do -add it to the list.

    —Minnette on March 13, 2014
  • I have been quilting for about 10 years now and I have been looking for a pattern to use for a civil war reproduction quilt. I have been interested in the civil war for a long time historically, and so when i saw the quilt collection that Carol put together in this book are quite stunning. The fabric in the collection would be perfect for any of these quilts.

    —Gerrie on March 13, 2014
  • I think the repro fabrics work very well for small quilts. They are very well suited, I think!

    —Susan on March 13, 2014
  • I have been working with a block exchange using Civil War reproductions. I love this area of our country’s history.

    —Debra baker on March 13, 2014
  • I’ve always been drawn to 1860s reproduction fabrics. My reproduction quilts are bed sized, but I love the idea of making small quilts with them. What a wonderful opportunity to be blessed and to make blessings to pass on to others.
    Thanks!

    —Robbin Golden on March 13, 2014
  • I just discovered these fabrics. A good old fashioned log cabin block, (my favourite) would look beautiful in this fabric.

    —Maggie on March 13, 2014
  • I recently fell in love with civil war fabric/quilts after visiting a local quilt shop. When a friend of mine moved to California she gifted me some of her beautiful civil was fabric. I would love to use the book to make my first (and I certainly could use the fabric)
    Thanks for your opportunity. Laura

    Laura Price on March 14, 2014
  • I love civil war fabrics and quilts and yours are so wonderful!

    —debbie shaw on March 14, 2014
  • I haven’t had the pleasure of getting acquainted with CWF, yet, but I will be checking them out, the next time I get to the quilt shop.

    —Emma Whittington on March 14, 2014
  • Absolutely love to make small wall quilts!

    Margaret K. on March 14, 2014
  • I just made my first purchase of Civil War Fabric in dark reds, dark blues and creams to make a patriotic quilt for my husband. He recently came home after spending two years in Afghanistan. I am going on a quilting retreat starting tomorrow and I hope to surprise him a finished quilt when I come home.

    —Donna V. on March 14, 2014
  • You have some wonderful quilts!

    —Evelyn C on March 14, 2014
  • Recently started buying Civil War fabrics, now planing on 3 quilts. Love the new book , she makes it look so easy to plan and pull all of the fabrics together. What a great win this would be. Have a great quilting day . Thanks for the opportunity.

    —Kathy Shelton on March 14, 2014
  • I have just recently started my stash of CWF’s. At first i stayed away from them. Now i look and see so many possibilities. I just bought my first of Carol’s books and am undertaking my first civil war type quilt. I am looking forward to this journey

    —Sharon Meyer on March 14, 2014
  • I love using CW fabrics. And these patterns look wonderful!

    Moira McSpadden on March 14, 2014

    —Evie H on March 14, 2014
  • The look is timeless

    —mararet on March 14, 2014
  • While not Civil War, I was just told last week that some of the fabrics I have acquired at garage & estate sales are in fact vintage 1950’s & 60s that are now being replicated. Made me happy.

    DFW on March 14, 2014
  • I like the subtle colors of civil war fabrics. I made a tesselation quilt using some of them.

    —teri c on March 14, 2014
  • I used an eagle applique pattern and 3 cookie cutters to create 2 12″ blocks. I did a stash raid and cut 2 6″ blocks out of all my patriotic fabrics. I went home to Texas in late September last year for Quilt Across Texas. On my first day of QAT, I took my late father with me. Once I showed him the type of reproduction fabric I was looking for, he would wander through ahead of me and pick out fabrics. One memorable stop at Happiness is Quilting, I was pulling out a bolt of perspective fabric and heard "You might want to reconsider buying that fabric." I looked over and Dad was turning green from looking at the bolt. The design of the fabric made it look like it was rolling in spiral on the bolt. If you looked at it too long, you would start feeling motion sickness.

    —Ocotilla on March 14, 2014
  • I like to use these reproduction fabrics to make old-fashioned patchwork patterns: Double Irish Chain, Grandmother’s Flower Garden, and the like.

    —Mary P on March 14, 2014
  • I am working on a Dear Jane all in CW fabrics. Love it!

    Elaine on March 14, 2014

    Thanks for the giveaway,
    Jacqueline in Pitt Meadows

    —Jacqueline VH on March 14, 2014
  • I have made one full size quilt using charm squares in Civil War reproduction fabrics, and I love them. Sure would like to have some more, and the book, too!

    —Madeline on March 14, 2014
  • I’ve made one of Carol’s small quilts and plan to make more. I also have a king-sized Civil War repro quilt in the works–the components are made and now it’s time for me to finalize a layout.

    —Beth T. on March 14, 2014
  • I love these types of quilts! But I have not had the opportunity to use the civil war reproduction fabrics or patterns yet. But I will, they are too beautiful not to make one or two or more!

    —Nancy D on March 14, 2014
  • I love the colors in the civil war fabrics. I have made several quilts, large and small in time-period patterns. I love to make sampler quilts also and have made a couple in civil war fabrics. But since I love the colors, I also take current patterns and use the civil war fabrics. I am currently working on a New York Beauty quilt in queen size.

    —Cindy C on March 14, 2014
  • I have Carol’s first book and I love it. I like making small scrappy quilts. Thanks for the chance to win!

    —Mary on March 14, 2014

    —Rhonda on March 14, 2014
  • I am a new quilter and have not discovered the Civil War Fabrics. From what I can see in this blog they are truly beautiful and I would love to win the fabric and then make a traditional quilt in either a log cabin or maybe with different star blocks. Thanks for the great giveaway.

    —Margo S. on March 14, 2014

    —Susan Clarkson on March 14, 2014
  • I haven’t purchased Civil War Fabric but I have been gifted some and am excited to make a quilt from the fabric. Thanks.

    —Mom C on March 14, 2014
  • Civil war fabrics are my favorite. The colors are so warm and homey. My eye is automatically drawn to Civil War fabrics when I go into a quilt shop. I enjoy filling my house with the little quilts. I have loved using the Civil War Legacey Book. I’m so glad to hear Carol Hopkins has published another one!

    Teresa Worrell on March 14, 2014
  • I love reproduction fabrics. I’d love to try a quilt as reproduced from the Civil War.

    —Sandy on March 14, 2014
  • Have you discovered Civil War reproduction fabric? Oh, boy, have I. I document quilts of this era, and the fabrics are my favorite. I drool over those madders and double pinks and poison greens. I own a lot of the repros, but never enough! What kind of quilts do you make with it? I have recently been forced to cut back to small quilts from large ones I have made since before rotary cutters (like Carol)because of back surgery that left my arms weak for flinging those big pieces around. So the quilts are small now, and Carol’s book is perfect for me to use my stash augmented with more of Judie’s Marcus Bros fabric!! Can hardly wait!!

    —S. Seater on March 14, 2014
  • I LOVE CW! It’s always my go-to fabric, and the first thing I head for in any shop that has it. I’ve used it for traditional baskets, churn dash, shoo-fly, and Barbara Brackman’s CW 2011 BOW, of course. There’s nothing I don’t use it to make! Thanks for a chance to win.

    Susan on March 14, 2014
  • I have not purchased Civil War fabrics but would love to try some and make one of Carols quilts!

    —Susan on March 14, 2014
  • I have just started loving this fabric. I am in the process of collecting Civil War fabric so this giveaway is awesome for me. Thanks for the chance to win such pretty fabric and an E-Book.

    —Renea on March 14, 2014
  • I like the civil war fabrics, just love the color combos! I would make a wall hanging if I had civil war fabrics.

    —Bridget on March 14, 2014
  • I am soon to join a civil war quilt group. I am growing fond of the colors and patterns that I have been seeing lately. I will be making a sampler first.

    —Debby H on March 14, 2014
  • I do love the civil war reproduction fabrics. I like making sampler quilts, but I tend to put sashings in them so each block stands out on its own, but yet, the block still play nice together!!

    —Sue on March 14, 2014
  • I’ve loved Civil War repros for many years, and they are perfect for traditional patterns. I love to create my own "antique" quilts.
    I have "Civil War Legacies I" and it’s very inspirational!

    —Celine K. on March 14, 2014
  • Old Sturbridge is a beautiful line of fabric. I would love to make Baskets for Betsy with it. The book looks exciting!

    jan on March 14, 2014

    —ruby t on March 14, 2014
  • I love Civil War Reproduction fabric and am delighted to find out about Carol’s books because I love making small quilts too. My favorite pattern is Lizzie’s Tents. I wonder why?
    Lizzie.

    Lizzie on March 14, 2014
  • I love civil war quilts and the fabrics of that era or beautiful. I like making samplers.

    —Linda H on March 14, 2014
  • I would love to win the Civil War Fabrics. A friend of mine made a sampler quilt with Civil War Fabrics and I thought it was such a beautiful quilt that it made me want to construct one also. That I could do with these fabrics.

    —Doris Worthen on March 14, 2014
  • One of my favorite quilts (and the one my youngest daughter has earmarked for a wedding quilt) was made using one of Carol’s patterns. So, yes, I have discovered Civil War fabrics.

    —Cynthia on March 15, 2014
  • I love civil war reproductions!! My friend made me a selvage bag with all civil war reproductions. I have made books with swatches of what civil war fabric I have, the name of the fabric, dated it, the designer and the fabric company. People that meet me say "so your the one." Those fabrics would be great in my collection and to use in my civil war reproduction quilts.

    —Lynn on March 15, 2014
  • Look at all the repro fans. Me included. Pick me, Pick me!!!

    Susan on March 15, 2014
  • The fabrics I’ve seen are beautiful. I’ve been wondering how to use them. The book would be the push I need to go in another direction with quilts.
    Thanks for the chance!

    —Elizabeth Tallau on March 15, 2014
  • I have fallen in love with civil war reproductions. Miniature quilts and doll quilts are especially fun to make. I attended a study group for this time period and learned so much about civil war fabrics and colors. It was an eye opener. Brightly colored fabrics were as popular then as they are now! I would love to win the book and fabrics to make more miniatures.

    —Mary on March 15, 2014
  • I would make a simple quilt to conserve fabric. Thanks for the giveaway!

    —Valerie A. Clark on March 15, 2014
  • I love working with CW repro fabrics. I have used Carol Hopkins and Lori Smith patterns.

    —Pat Rudolph on March 15, 2014
  • I am a sewer of many years of many different things, from clothing to handbags. I am truly a newbie to the making of quilts and would much rather do small items. Like Carol, a lot of the items I have made through the years have been organic so to speak. I like to grab the fabric and start the cutting. Let the magic happen. I have made a couple of hand bags with the Civil War era fabrics for gifts. They were gorgeous and well received.

    —Annette on March 15, 2014
  • I think if anyone were not a Civil War fabric fan, then this post would help them become one for sure! I absolutely LOVE the Baskets for Betsy quilt. All the colors are just marvelous in all these quilts. I’d LOVE to win a bundle of the fabric. Thank you!

    Deb on March 15, 2014

  • I love CW fabrics. The Civil War fascinates me. For almost 20 years we lived close to Gettysburg and spent many days there with my children. I’m making a Dear Jane quilt with CW fabrics so have lots of scraps to use in more quilts. I have Civil War Legacies I and would love to have the sequel. So many quilts, so little time. But there is always time to make another civil war quilt. Thanks for the opportunity to win a book!!

    —Susanne H on March 16, 2014
  • Just love Civil war reproductions. I have made several quilts using them and have book marked a quilt in ‘Civil war Legacies’ book as soon as I finish a turkey tracks quilt using pink reproductions.

    —Diane Hall on March 16, 2014
  • It’s a Civil War Smorgasbord of color! Oh, how I would love to feast upon these colors. Marcus Fabrics from Judie Rothermel’s “Enduring Legacy” and Civil War Legacies II are an irresistible combination. I can’t wait to get started on a new project!

    Susan Winters on March 16, 2014

    Dianne on March 17, 2014
  • Being a Civil War re-enactment fan, I naturally love CW fabrics—such rich, homey colors and patterns. It’s easy to imagine the women of yesteryear, cutting up old garments and reusing the material to create something beautiful, yet functional, like a quilt. Thank you for this wonderful giveaway!

    —Mary Jo on March 18, 2014
  • Civil War Repro Fabrics have their own unique charm. I made a snowball designed quilt using a large variety of Civil War pieces.
