Pattern Details

Stitch this beautiful Civil War Sampler quilt (72" x 72") using vintage patterns with reproduction fabrics (The Blue and the Gray by Windham). The center 24" Fredonia Oak Leaf is easy to make using raw edge appliqué, as is the Order No. 11 (12"). Of course, this appeals to those of you who enjoy hand appliqué. The other blocks have clear instructions for rotary cutting. Full size templates for the appliqué blocks make this easy to get stitching! A color page with the fabric skus (images) is also included. This quilt was beautifully quilted by Connie Gallant (who also owns this!)
