Study of Civil War Quilts

Thanksgiving is behind us, but for me, besides over eating and enjoying my family connections, it has given me a reason to consider my blessings and to live with a thankful heart.

Today I am revisiting The Rocky Mountain Quilt Museum in Denver, Colorado.  This star quilt is stunning!

The Study of Civil War Quilts.

What a gorgeous quilt this is, with incredible hand quilting.

All of these Civil War era quilts were very inspirational.  I am always drawn to the old traditional designs.

I apologize, but I did not remember to get the information on this beautiful quilt.

Wishing not to be forgotten, women sign their name to cloth.

  1. What beautiful quilts. I was particularly drawn to Lyres & Laurel and Louisa's Hope. Both stunning as was Union. I can't imagine creating such lovely quilts.
