YANKEE DIARY BOM Civil War Quilts Sampler 2017. Blocks 5-8 Paper Patterns by Mail. $10 Barbara Brackman Historical Series
In 2017 I'm posting patterns for Yankee Diary, a Civil War reproduction quilt with a modern set. The mostly applique patterns are based on Civil-War-era quilts. The stories are based on a girl's diary 1854-1865. Caroline Richards lived in Canandaigua, New York and tells us about the Civil War from a well-to-do New Yorker's perspective.
You may prefer to have a paper pattern mailed to you, which I am glad to do.
Purchase the second set of patterns (Block 5-8, May-August 2017) to be mailed immediately for $10 (includes US shipping.) You get 6 sheets 8-1/2" x 11" with black and white pattern pictures, cutting and sewing instructions. Plus a little bit of the Yankee Diary story.
You'll get these before the blog readers do. Don't spoil their surprises unless they beg.
I think I can afford to send these abroad for the same price. I'll fold them in thirds and put them in a letter size envelope.
For more of the stories & more block pictures check my blog Civil War Quilts on the last Wednesday of each month in 2017. http://civilwarquilts.blogspot.com/
I'll post the next 4 patterns (September-December 2017) up here at my Etsy shop in September, 2017.
