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 appliqué—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.
Pam Holland was catapulted to fame in the U.S. quilting community when 1776 swept Best in Show at four major U.S. quilt shows. She immediately became one of the most sought-after teachers on the national scene, crowning a successful international teaching career. She is also a designer, quilt-show judge, and appraiser.

"Pam makes it possible for anyone to replicate the 'picture windows' in the original quilt—or create...their own. Incredible."  —Kaye England, author, teacher, and historian
