A Perfect Blend of History and Sewing Aug 10, 2008
This is a wonderful book. I love history, and even though I am not of German descent, my family dates back to pre Revolution days. I'm a new quilter and this is the perfect book for me. I love how it tells a story and is beautiful. Even making a panel or two challenges me and I want to make everything as historically correct as possible. The instructions are terrific. I think anyone interested in creating their own piece of beautiful treasure for their own home and has a taste for history, will love this book.
The 1776 Quilt Oct 18, 2007
I ordered "The 1776 Quilt" for two reasons, I like to quilt and my ancestry is from Bautzen. My family the Wendlandt's are from that part of Sachsen, Germany. I was totally amazed at the author's ability to capture the details of the quilt and her daily journaling. I am also looking forward to reproducing some of the figures of the quilt. Great book.
Always satisfied Mar 31, 2007
As usual, I was very satisfied with my recent purchase, as I have been with ALL of my purchases. I have found items thru you that I have been told were out of print and not to be found. Keep up the great work.
