    I'm curious. Is a civil war quilt one that is done in colors that were popular in 1860-1864? one that is a copy of ones in museums that survived from the early 1860's? ones that have appliques of scenes or items that depict things from the civil war? Just what makes a civil war quilt? What is the difference in a civilian 1860's quilt and a war 1860's quilt?

    Check out my Civil War swap - one, two, three......several blocks have been posted of those in the swap. I choose only three blocks to swap out, the Double T has become a favorite, and Shoo Fly and Star of Virginia have made nice complimentary blocks.

    Check out the free patterns on www.unitednations.com. There are several on that site thst might interest you. There's one named Battlehymn 1862, but the one I like best is called Comfort. I think it would be beautiful in CW fabric. Hope this helps. :-)
