One of our favorite customers, Marilyn, sent us this picture of the purse her 10-year-old granddaughter Elizabeth made with her. Elizabeth loves spending time at grandma's making quilts, totes, and other crafts. Elizabeth used Amy Butler's "In Town Bag" pattern and a charm pack. Together they shopped and selected coordinating lining and trims. Great job, Elizabeth!

During the Civil War, southern women, especially in the rural Confederacy, lived with shortages and substitutions. Imagine having to make do with hoops fashioned of hickory splints, needles made of locust thorns or thread raveled out of rags. Or, how about your morning coffee made from parched corn or okra seeds? Hats styled from palmetto fronds were proudly worn to support the secession.
The fabrics in the Civil War Homefront kit serve as reminders of those old make-do times -- plaids for the home-dyed homespuns, and calico prints that a blockade runner might have brought. The quilt is designed by Barbara Brackman for Moda. Don't miss the opportunity to make one of these inspirational quilts for yourself! We're taking pre-orders for the kits until October 1st at a special price of $100 (regular price is $120). The pattern for the quilt will be appearing in the December/January issue of Quilters' Newletter magazine; a copy of the magazine will be included with each kit!
