ITEM#: 3596267

The Civil War era was a time of great tragedy and triumph, and for a diverse group of women it was a distinctive thread in their lives and their quilting. Quilters and historians alike will appreciate the timeless lessons shared through actual diary entries and 121 related quilt blocks featured in The Civil War Diary Quilt, from Rosemary Youngs, author of the innovative book, The Amish Circle Quilt.

This reference incorporates instructions, list of supplies, a photo gallery, and 121 quilt blocks inspired by actual diary entries from 10 women living during the Civil War. Readers meet a variety of women including: Mary Austin Wallace, through her stories about running a 160-acre farm in Michigan while her husband is away at war; 17-year-old Emma Florence LeConte, as she recounts the day the Union army set a path to destruction through Columbia, SC; and Rachel Young King Anderson, who moved away from Tennessee with her husband and children to start a new life.

In addition to the 121 blocks that make a full quilt, this must-have reference includes smaller projects that use the same blocks.

  • Wonderful Book
    Verified Purchase

    The quilt blocks are beautiful and so creative but the stories from the ladies that lived in that time bring so much meaning to each one. It truly brings that era to life and all the saddness of the civil war. We should all take a lesson for these women.

  • Hand and Needle Were a Must
    Verified Purchase

    This book starts conversations everywhere I take it to read. This book is not for entertainment only. It is a book for those who love history of families, survival, and unique ways people made their hobbies help them cope and survive the trials of this national crisis. I have shown it to my public library and they have order it, also. You will be taken back to a time when the hand and needle were a must in everyday life. Hats off to the publisher.
