The Civil War Sewing Circle
Martingale & Co.; $24.99
Perfect for reproduction fabric lovers, The Civil War Sewing Circle offers 16 projects ranging from cot-sized quilts to small wall hangings and doll quilts to pincushions, aka “Tokens of Affection.” I particularly liked the wool appliqué sewing box. What sets the book apart is the inclusion of historical photos and excerpts from letters written to and from soldiers during the Civil War. It was so easy to get lost in the letters.
