Ever so slowly we are conquering the new technology and have now started to load the huge back log of new fabrics. so keep peeking at the web-site.
CIVIL WAR CROSSES
NEW BLOCK OF THE MONTH
Civil Crosses is Quiltsmith’s second in-house Block of the Month. In this quilt we have combined our two loves, quilt history and colour. With Civil Crosses we hope everyone can see just how bright and colourful Civil War period quilts can be.
Civil Crosses is a wonderfully colourful example of the mid eighteenth century “Turkey Red & Green” colour way, sometimes referred to as Pennsylvania Dutch colours. (Although the Pennsylvania quilts tend to be more circa 1870-80). The use of ‘Cheddar” yellow as the setting colour is a very important and accurate to the Civil War period.
Here is the complete quilt (sorry the photo is not the best, we just couldn't get the lighting right), with some close ups of the blocks.
We are promising no fabric substitutions so you can have full confidence with our Block of the Month programme.
