If you are looking for inspiration for 19th-century reproductions check out this book:
The Blue and the Gray: Quilt Patterns using Civil War Fabrics by Mary Etherington and Connie Tesene.
Mary and Connie are from Country Threads in Iowa, a great shop and a good source for reproduction fabrics.
Here are a few of their quilts.
On the theme of blue and gray they interpret quilts
right up to the end of the century
when grayed-blues and gray prints were so popular with quilters.
