Threads of Memory BOM Free Pattern Posts

Threads of Memory #1
Portsmouth Star
by Jo 


Over on my Civil War Quilts blog I did a free Block of the Month pattern in 2014 for a series of original stars called Threads of Memory.We're on to a new project over there but I thought I would post this page with the addresses for the 12 monthly patterns.

UPDATE 2017: I've taken the patterns down but left the stories up there. You can buy a PDF or paper pattern here:https://www.etsy.com/listing/484994362/threads-of-memory-civil-war-quilt?ref=shop_home_active_3
Threads of Memory #2
Mercer County Star


For my models I chose these red, black and white stars by Jo who did such a great job of interpreting my designs in graphic fashion.

Threads of Memory #3
New Garden Star

Each block symbolizes a true story about slavery, escape, emancipation and freedom---an accurate form of "Underground Railroad" quilt. The blocks are named after locations important in the history of American slavery. The stories celebrate courageous individuals.

  5. Being an appliquer and not a piecer - I was immediately drawn to the cute waving figure on the bottom block. Where is this from? I am intrigued

  6. That portrait of Jo is from the 1930's Nancy Pae pattern called the Brothers & sisters quilt. I bet you can find a pattern on the web.
