Re-Piecing the Past

Civil War Blocks Then & Now

with Kaye England
Re-Piecing the Past
Learn Kaye England's precise piecing methods and make 12 traditional blocks, inspired by the stories of strong women of the Civil War era.

One of the biggest names in quilting comes to Craftsy! Quilter, author and teacher Kaye England brings her expertise in traditional quilting to this information-packed online Craftsy class. In Re-Piecing the Past, you'll learn foundational piecing techniques as you work through 12 included block patterns, each with its own story to tell - from Harriet Beecher Stowe's "Uncle Tom's Cabin" to "Battle Cry of Freedom," a song so popular it was sung on both sides of the Mason-Dixon line.
