We need Civil war fabrics around here. I am forcing my son to do the Barbara Brackman Civil War blog quilt as part of school this year and I didn't have ANY around. We bought some but might need more. I confess the pattern would not be used for awhile as this quilt comes first!

Congratulations on 250 plus followers. That is a great milestone. Lori Smith is a wonderful little-quilt designer and I love all her patterns and her book. Civil War fabrics are also a love of mine. Unfortunately, I don't have a quilt shop near me that carries them so winning your giveaway would be perfect.
