Linda Bergmann, Civil War Elegance
I found a picture on the web in a group of favorites from Sacramento's River City Quilt Show
in 2013. I liked Linda's palette and then when I looked at a close-up I could see why.
She's used several fabrics from my Civil War Reunion collection for Moda from a few years ago. I am impressed by the way Linda uses modern paper-piecing techniques and design with the old-fashioned palette derived from natural dyes.
Various photos show the colors slightly different but I hope
you get the picture. Cheri has commented that the pattern is Judy Niemeyer's Dancing Batiks.
Linda's been winning a lot of ribbons with her quilts over the past few years.
