Trolling for Pictures

It's always fun for me to find familiar fabrics in other people's blog posts. Debbie has been making different versions of Jeff Davis's daughter using prints from my Moda line 1862: Battle Hymn

Here's a link to Debbie's blog:

Kathie at Inspired by Antique Quilts said:  "I had to use my favorite turkey red fabric right now in a block! Civil War Reunion by Barbara Brackman for MODA." 
See Kathie's post here:

Kathe D. loves that paisley too and she made a four patch using the 2-1/2" Moda Candy squares (a quarter of a Charm Square from Civil War Reunion) to make this wall quilt. The detail of the top shows the color better and how she constructed it.

The next Civil War line (you'll see previews soon) has a great paisley for the large print with a red version and a pink version.

Cyndi at the BusyThimble Quilt Shop posted a mini Broken Dishes made from a Charm Pack of Civil War Crossings

And here's a Jacob's Ladder quilt that Sandra H. made from Jelly Roll strips of A Morris Tapestry.

She sent photos

About a year ago Katie Mae told me she wanted to make a quilt for her father who volunteered at the Manassus Battlefield site. Were there any Manassus patterns? The best I could come up with was Railroad Crossing, a good symbolic design for a battle fought over a junction. I recognize the red print.
Here's a link to her blog:

See the pattern here:


  1. OH I love seeing how others used this fabric
    I LOVE this turkey red print fabric and started an appliqué quilt using just this fabric for all the blocks as well.

  4. Hi, Barbara. I bought a random fat quarter to add to my civil war repro fabrics the other day. When I got it home and looked at the selvege, there was your name and 1862 Battle Hymn. Thanks for helping make these fabrics available. Lane
