Vintage Legacies

Martingale has published another book packed with #CreativeGoodness.  It is a “must have” book for anyone who enjoys working with reproduction fabrics, but I think it is also packed with designs which would also look great in any color palette, even batiks & modern prints!

Vintage Legacies – Wrap Up in 14 Ageless Quits for Reproduction Fabrics, by Carol Hopkins.




Carol Hopkins, author of the best-selling Civil War Legacies series, is back with her sixth book, revealing a big twist–big quilts! You’ll love learning how Carol uses her signature Civil War color palette in larger quilts, each more stunning than the last.


Fourteen patterns ranging from lap-size to twin pay tribute to Southern belles, men’s work shirts from the Civil War era, First Lady of the United States Mary Todd Lincoln, and more. Interesting tidbits about nineteenth-century life round out this gorgeous collection that will inspire you to think big!



Carol Hopkins, recently retired from a 40-year teaching career at Purdue University, enjoys spending time with her husband, her children, and their spouses, and her four grandchildren. Through her pattern business, Carol Hopkins Designs, she markets quilt patterns that she has designed for eighteenth- and nineteenth-century reproduction fabrics. Carol’s books and patterns are sold worldwide, and many of her designs have been featured in national and international quilt publications.

I truly feel this is a “must have” book for anyone who enjoys working with reproduction fabrics, but it is also an excellent book for those that want to create classic looking designs even with batiks, or fabrics of their choosing.


With 14 designs in this book, all come with easy to follow instructions and great visuals, makes this book an exceptional value when you consider the price of a standalone pattern.


I hope you get a chance to check out this book at your favorite quilt shop.  As always, if you don’t see it let them know you are interested in them making it available.  It is such a new book they simply may not be aware of it.  Of course, you can also find it at Shop Martingale, as well as Amazon.
