Path of Freedom from Civil War Remembered


We are almost finished with the quilts/house tour.  Two quilts remain at the Martingale offices for display at Spring Quilt Market in Minneapolis in May.  Today’s quilt is called “Path of Freedom” and measures 36″ x 36″ – if you recall, I love this size!  I have taught some of my students to look carefully at a quilt and break down the units that usually make up a square – here we have triangle squares and star blocks in rows of carefully placed colors that create a “barn raising” type of layout.  Nice, very nice!

Tomorrow’s the last day and I can’t thank you enough for your many kind comments about our new book.  I will be wrapping up the house tour tomorrow.

    Mary – I have thoroughly enjoyed your “house tour”. In fact, I already have the book and I’m trying to decide which one to do first! I look forward to your messages every day. Linda

    Got my copy of Connie and your new book! Love it!!! Usually when I buy a book there are only a couple of projects I do, but I love all of the quilts in this book. Great job putting it together. Thanks so much~

    My copy of your new book arrived yesterday. They are all so lovely but the questions is: which one do I start first. Thanks for the tour and the beautiful quilts. I enjoyed every minute.

    I love the quilts from this book! This style has always been a favorite and, as much as I’ve been forcing myself to expand my horizons, quilts like this keep pulling me back to my roots. I fought the urge through the first few blogs, but I give up. There’s no way I would pass up the chance to add this book to my library. Thanks for giving us such a fun tour of your home, the perfect showplace for your quilts!
