Civil War era quilt squares

 Last week I was invited to do a display at a local historic village, John A Logan College, Carterville, IL. They have an open house in July and the theme is quilts of the civil war era.  I am working on squares that I found online, and many from a book by Barbara Brackman.  Available on Kindle for about $2.99. Barbara Brackman's Civil War Sampler: 50 Quilt Blocks with Stories from History  Kindle Edition by   Barbara Brackman     (Author)     Format:   Kindle Edition Here are a few that I have completed: Each image, in the book, is followed by a historic reference article and tips for conventional quilters.  Thus far it's a fun project with pretty simple designs. More to follow.
