Civil War Tribute - As we approach the 150 year anniversary of the Civil War in 2011, Marcus Brothers, Judie Rothermel and Homestead Hearth are partnering to create a special Block of the Month that will run from Jan.-Dec. 2010. Each of the quilt blocks represents a major battle fought during the war. The patterns will have detailed instructions along with historical references about the corresponding battle and how it affected the lives of those left at home--in both the North and the South. There will be source material from actual diaries and letters. What a fun way to delve into history! You will receive a pattern and fabric each month for 12 months beginning in January 2010 and the finished quilt measures 100" by 112". We are no longer offering this program.
