    Thanks. :thumbup: I'm so new to this genre, I didn't realize that their newest collection was CW. :oops: Much appreciated.

    I bought 4 different sets of fifty 8x11 pieces of CW fabrics on eBay for a scrappy quilt (well, it was originally for the Dear Jane but I just couldn't make myself do it). I don't remember the price but I'm sure I didn't pay too much for it.

    Thanks for the tip, Pam. I have been checking ebay, too. I'm sure I haven't seen them all of course, have found some FQ's for 1.65 each, not bad, so watching those as a possibility. Haven't looked today tho, so off I go...

    I don't remember the seller. They were bundles specifically put together for Dear Jane. I used probably half of them in my avatar quilt.

    Deb's Cats & Quilts in Franklin, NC, has a wonderful assortment of Civil War reproduction fabrics. I made a CW quilt for my son for Christmas and he has taken it to the university where he teaches to show it off in the history department.

    I order from Stitch N Frame, Whittle's, The Stitching Post, Fabric.com, Quilts R Jewels, and Yoder's.
    Stitch N Frame has a special sale every Thursday from selected fabrics in their store. I always watch for those. They're having a huge Winter Clearance right now with many Civil War fabrics included.

    I just got the latest Keepsake Quilting catalogue and it had a section of Civil War Fabrics and some patterns---not a huge section, but they had some.

    Oh, I forgot about Craft Town. I order from there ALL the time. It's a great quilt shop in Salem, IN if you live close enough to go. They have some great sales prices right now, although they're not Civil War related.

    They have shirtings but they are not in clearance. Have you checked out their web site?
