Civil War Crossings Jelly Roll by Barbara Brackman for Moda. This Moda Jelly Roll contains forty 2 1/2″ x 45″ strips of fabric rolled up and tied in a cute ribbon. Fabric is all new, 100% premium Moda cotton. Collection description: This 1860 – 1880 reproduction collection from Barbara Brackman echos the time when America’s rivers defined battlefields North and South. Each print is named for a river — the War’s lifelines, barriers and borders. From the Susquehanna near Gettysburg, Pennsylvania to the Sabine near the Texas Gulf, the waterways marked the War’s tragic progress. Colors recreate traditional natural shades — madder, buff and Prussian blue. The prints drawn from quilts of the time, include a patriotic postwar flag print and a tiny patchwork-like stripe. Stories of the Civil War continue to fascinate quiltmakers who will be thrilled to find authentic updates for their reproduction quilts.
