Once in a lifetime a quilt like this comes along.
When a photo of this quilt was shared with my small quilting group here on Lopez Island the email chatter exploded! Everyone was stunned / amazed and in awe of the workmanship and crazy beauty of this quilt. I was asked to create a pattern and teach the making of it to a few friends. Thus The 1876 Centennial Quilt Project was born.
Step by step, block by block you will recreate
You determine the colors and style of fabric - Reproduction to Modern - it's up to you.
Hone your piecing skills as you learn different techniques, tips, and tricks while working your way through 81 individual blocks and borders; some easy, some not.
