From beloved design team Country Threads comes an all-new collection of patterns inspired by quilts from the Civil War era. Their signature make-do style comes to life in 14 designs featuring a range of sizes, including small, simple-to-sew tributes and larger quilts featuring hundreds of scrap fabrics.

Projects are paired with period photographs and fascinating true stories of unsung heroines of the Civil War, from women who disguised themselves as soldiers to others who became doctors, nurses, and even spies in order to serve. Whether you're a fan of traditional designs, Civil War fabrics, or scrappy-to-the-max patterns, these stunning quilts are sure to inspire you.

Connie Tesene and Mary Etherington of Garner, Iowa, are the authors of six best-selling books from Martingale. Now retired, the pair were owners of the famed quilt shop Country Threads from 1982 to 2014. Their work has been featured in numerous national publications. Country-Threads-Chicken-Scratch.com
