Civil War Sampler Quilt

This quilt was made from the book, A Path to the Civil War: Aureliia's Journey Quilt, by Sarah Maxwell and Delores Smith, published by C&T Publishing in Kansas City, Missouri in 2010. The book was a birthday present from my sister (who has an interest and degrees in history). Before I started this quilt, I was able to find a box of fat quarters of Civil War reproduction fabrics that I used in the blocks. I also found Civil War reproduction backing of black diamonds on a beige background. I closely followed the colors in the book for making my blocks.
I machine-pieced this quilt then hand-quilted it (200 hours) using my Great-Great-Grandmother's (Nancy Ellen Bond Hughes) quilting frame made by her son Roy. I bound the quilt in a black-on-black print to frame it. It is now lying on our king-sized bed so we can see it everyday!
