I went all out this year and shipped in every Civil-War-related
quilt I know of for my virtual booth at Quilt Market this week.

Spring Quilt Market starts this week
in Salt Lake City.
I'm not REALLY going but I like to plan a virtual booth. The theme this
year: Civil War Quilts.
Look for me and Dottie Barker in the section on quilts inspired by
the 1861 Peterson's Magazine pattern for a "Stars & Stripe Bedquilt."
We'll be talking about my next mid-19th-century reproduction line
Baltimore Blues (in shops in the fall.)
You could make a lot of red, white and blue quilts with the line.
I really had to twist some virtual museum arms to get them to loan me their treasures. And the virtual insurance bill was larger than the literal state of Rhode Island.

But as I've said: If I had all the money in the world I'd have a quilt show of
every Civil War quilt we've discovered.
If you can't drop by at market go to my Pinterest page of Civil War quilts:
It's another virtual quilt show.
