Faithful and Devoted

# 19617
By Sarah Maxwell & Dolores Smith
When Charles Tenney, a young Union soldier, has a chance meeting with the sister of one of his officers, he is instantly captivated. After one meeting, he asks her if he could write her while he is away. To his delight, she agrees. With the Civil War raging around them, Charles and Adelaide fall in love through a series of remarkably preserved letters. We read as Charles courts Adelaide while witnessing to her his experiences in battle. And in her letters to Charles, we watch as she recounts her experiences on the home front all while her feelings for him develop from simple friendship to deep and profound love. Celebrate Charles and Adelaide's memory with this quilted interpretation of their love story. Authors and quilt designers Sarah Maxwell and Dolores Smith of Homestead Hearth in Mexico, Mo., show us how to create two quilts based on the same 12 pieced blocks. One quilt, Adelaide, is created in rosy reds and greens. Charlie is made in soft blues, browns and creams. Four additional quilts inspired by Charles and Adelaide are included.

Welcome Home

# 19775
The Welcome Home Sampler Quilt is by self-confessed quilt-aholic and pattern designer Cheryl Wall. Welcome Home was inspired by house motifs, often used in her designs, and the pleasure she feels when being welcomed into someone's home. The quilt depicts many homes, each with a unique personality, made up of different pieced blocks and some applique for interest. Cheryl encourages you to use your own personality and fabrics you have on hand to make this quilt reflect who you are. Welcome Home contains a second charming quilt, One House, Two House, and several smaller projects, including a wallhanging, a tablerunner, a picture, and a pillow, which include a variety of techniques including embroidery and working with wool. All of them were inspired by the idea of "home." Along the way, she gives you mini tutorials on quilting details, from "Making Half-Square Triangles" to "Finishing Your Quilt." Cheryl also tells how she innocently began her quilting addiction with a Complete-in-a-Weekend project that led down the slippery slope to becoming a quilt-aholic.

History Repeated

# 19773
by Betsy Chutchian & Carol Staehle Making a quilt is easier than you might think when you gather some friends and exchange blocks. Let the 19th-Century Patchwork Divas show you how. Inspired by their love of antique 19th-century quilts, this Texas-based block exchange group recreates these quilted treasures of the past with 1800s reproduction fabrics. The group’s co-founders, Betsy Chutchian and Carol Staehle, have assembled a captivating collection of quilts from past block exchanges. Ranging from the simplicity of the Double Nine-Patch block to the more challenging Carolina Lily block, there is a project for every skill level among this book’s 16 classic quilts. Each of the chapters features detailed block instructions that you can easily adapt for your own block exchange as well as one to three setting options for completing your quilts. And for those who prefer to make the quilts individually, each setting option also includes all the necessary block instructions to help you successfully complete the projects from start to finish.
