The Civil War Edition
Back in the Sew Mama Sew Give Away week I won this book from Bear Hollow Quilts. Sandy and her husband are Civil War re-enactors and clothing re-creators. Ever since the Ken Burns The Civil War documentaries from the early 90s I have had an interest in the American Civil War. I even got to tour Gettysburg in January 2000. Such a sobering place even for an Aussie.
This booklet documents the story of the team who put together an authentic era quilt for the Lincoln Museum.
There are instructions for making your own quilt.
Can you believe that I still have not yet seen 3 time Oscar winner Daniel Day Lewis in Lincoln? My husband and I planned a date night with Italian food to see it but a wild storm destroyed our plans.

Happy Independence Day to you USA folks!
See you over at Pretty Bobbins.
