During the Civil War, many beautiful southern gardens were neglected. Thorns and weeds grew among the beautifully colored rose bushes. I was inspired to make this quilt after seeing the striped thorn print in Judie Rothermel’s Civil War Chronicles fabric line for Marcus Fabrics. I used all of the fabrics in that line to make the 25 scrappy 6-inch rose blocks set in diagonal rows separated by the thorn print sashing.
