|All of us at Quilter's Window are excited to bring you two local icons in the Quilting World. Connie Tesene and Mary Etherington. Connie and Mary have been retired from the Country Threads quilt shop but continue to produce quilt books to inspire us through Martingale Publishing. Be sure to look the ladies up on their Threads Chicken Scratch Blog.
A Country's Call....Reach back in time and visit 14 heroines of the Civil War with the treasured design team of Country Threads. Then, create an array of beautiful quilts inspired by the stories of these courageous women. From a simple string quilt to spectacular scrap quilts bursting with hundreds of fabrics, each project captures the look of antique quilts from the era. Authentic photos and true accounts of Civil War history will draw in quilters and Civil War buffs alike.

Beyond The Battlefield...From beloved design team Country Threads comes this all-new collection of patterns inspired by quilts from the Civil War era. Mary Etherington and Connie Tesene's signature make-do style comes to life in 14 quilts, from small, simple tributes to larger quilts featuring hundreds of scrap fabrics.
Projects are paired with period photographs and fascinating true stories of unsung heroines of the Civil War, from women who disguised themselves as soldiers to others who became doctors, nurses, and even spies in order to serve. Whether you're a fan of traditional designs, Civil War fabrics, or scrappy-to-the-max patterns, these stunning quilts are sure to inspire.
Be sure to join us on December 12th downtown New Hampton for some Holiday Cheer, store specials, friendship and prepare to be inspired by the quilts from Beyond The Battlefield. Both Books will be available for the book signing. If you would like to reserve a copy of these books, please contact the store and we will be happy to save them for you. Can't make it? No problem, we can have the ladies sign them for you, save your copies or even mail them for a small fee. Hope you can join us!
