We are in Week #4 of the Civil War Quilt
by Barbara Brackman. Check out her blog:
Quilters use many different "types" of fabric
including Civil War Reproduction fabrics.
Reproductions are fabrics that are inspired
by actual fabrics of the time period.
I know quilters that will only work with
reproduction fabrics. I know other quilters that
will only work with one fabric style in a
specific quilt. For example, if they are using
batiks, the entire quilt must be batik fabric.
I am driven by color so I will use whatever
fabric works best for the specific quilt.
I can mix and match fabric types easily.
For this project I am trying to use reproduction
fabrics or at least fabrics that have the "feel" of
the Civil War era.
