Stars Over Virginia

The Civil War forever changed the face of America and her quilting traditions. This workshop provides an opportunity to create a Star Quilt top using popular patterns, fabrics and colors of the Civil War era. Piece according to the pattern or expand your quilt to any size by adding additional borders if desired. We will briefly discuss the history of quiltmaking during the Civil War, available fabrics and unique social situations that influenced the women of this era. Enjoy Mary’s lighthearted approach and learn fast precision piecing techniques while immersing yourself in history.
