    I'm in for six sets.

    and ? on the twists - can they be any color of Tone on Tone?
    I think these are like the marbles or is this like white with a brighter white vine. Still confused on TOT

    Just tell me this, please. Would they all have the "feel" of civil war period fabrics? I guess I am not a purist at this point, so I dont think it will matter, but I am curious now. TIA!
    Me neither... I cannot tell the difference between Reproductions or Civil War inspired so to make this easier and ALOT less stressful any repro or inspired fabric line will be accepted in this swap..

    Please - I'm still learning.

    Im sure there are more but these are the ones I found..

    I called Fons & porter and asked a silly question.. I get a Civil War fabric medley every month and I asked- point blank- are the fabrics in my medley ALL civil war reproductions.. She was a bit confused but said yes.. She prob thought I was dumber than a doornail asking such a silly question.. so here's two more that are supposed CW that are in my Medley stash, but I'm kinda questioning.. But then again I am no expert by no means..

    Itsy Bity by Andover fabrics
    Butterfly Kisses by Andover Fabrics

    Thank you for the information, I am a purist so I will not be joining.

    Bonnie Blue Fabric has beautiful CW mostly inspired. For REAL repros Abraham's Lady in Gettysburg has them and they do have an on line store.

    I went thru Whittle's Fabric online. I made sure this was what I was getting. MUCH prettier in person than here, sorry but it was taken with camera phone.

    Not that expensive and they have a good sellection! This one is supposed to be green and burgandy.
