Epigraph
Dedication
I dedicate this book to those of my family who have left us, but whose spirits will remain forever: my daughter, Liseby, whose life was claimed by cancer when she was only 24 years old; Karen, my son's partner, who was killed in an automobile accident; and my son Darrin, who also died in an automobile accident.  We love and remember you always.

Pam Holland's personal story of the famous 1776 quilt will capture the imagination of every quilter. Besides sharing the amazing history behind the antique quilt's construction on the battlefront by Sorbian soldiers--who used materials from their uniforms to piece it together--this book also shares the technique Holland used to successfully replicate the quilt. Quilters who are looking to incorporate her new technique--called inlay applique;--into their own work can use the included patterns, each of which were inspired by the original 1776 quilt. Featuring both incredible designs and a compelling story, this is a captivating read for quilters and historians alike.… (more)
