A Pin of Civil Unrest by Mary Etherington and Connie Tesene
From the book, The Blue and the Gray, Martingale Publishers
I pinned yet another quilt that really, really, really piqued my interest. While I'm by and large a more modern/contemporary quilter, I have grown an appreciation for the past. And this quilt is definitely one of them. I abso-freaking-lutely LOVE this quilt. And I'm itching to make two of these. Yes, I'm crazy. I'd like to make one in civil war/traditional fabrics and the other one in more modern fabrics. I'd like to explore the dichotomy of styles and how it changes the dynamic of a quilt pattern just by mere fabric choice.
Yes, I know I'm a crazy woman...
Here's the book cover
Whatcha think? Should I go modern or traditional first?
