    It is a Kim Diehl line. She is not known for CW repros although she does seem to gravitate to that color palette with a bit more whimsy thrown into some of the prints, more thimbleberries or folk style in my mind. However some of those prints could play very nicely with CW repros. I searched for the line on other sites to see bigger picture of prints. http://www.henryglassfabrics.net/fab.../wit-wisdom-1/

    How can I find a civil war line? I tried searching civil war but am not getting fabric lines, just Etsy sellers who aren’t naming the designers.

    Many sites are classifying Kims line Wit and Wisdom as Civil War Repro and the palette does seem to go with many so I seem to have mispoken in my previous post. Never considered her a CW repro person.

    Also look for lines by Jo Morton (Moda). There are shops out there that specialize in nothing but CW repro fabrics. I don't have a huge collection of them and what I have I got in trade. Here are some links I got doing a google search of Civil War Reproduction Fabric

    Some names I look at it Marcus Brothers, Andover, Windham there are others. Designers to look for are Paula Barnes, Faye Burgos , Nancy Gere, Judie Rothermal, there are others but can't think of them right now.
    Some places I find my CW fabrics at there are others but these are a few places I have ordered from. Hope these help.

    I think some of the dark fabrics could be used as civil war fabrics. There is a quilt store in Texas that my friend orders from for her civil war fabrics. It is call "2 Bees Quilt Shop". I believe that is name of it and not sure if the "2" is spelled out. Sometimes I just google "civil war fabrics" and find the fabrics that way. Good luck in your search

    Hancock’s of Paducah has a lot. Look up Marcus, Andover, etc. also can look up by designer name. Sandy girl gave you names of my favorite designers. Www.hancocksofpaducah.com. Prices are really good and I have been pleased with fabrics I bought from them.

    I agree for the fact they really do look CW and would go very with others. Thank you for the link.

    In case anyone else is as confused as I was, MSQC's link goes to the current daily deal, which changes every day. The one I happened to see (3 days after this thread started) was modern, bright colors that were pretty far removed from Civil War period styles.
