2014 Civil War Era Quilt Study
Fifty Quilts were exhibited at AQSG Seminar held in Milwaukee, Wisconsin in September 2014. The 2014 Quilt Study theme was Civil War Quilts. All inspiration quilts were required to be identifiable as a 'Civil War Quilt' defined as a quilt made between the years 1850-1865 for purpose of this Quilt Study. It is up to each Participant to determine their own construction methods for their projects based upon information available about the original quilt. The Study Quilts are limited to a 200” perimeter.
