A Union of Name

April 18, 1861 Sarah Lois Wadley wrote in her diary:

I am afraid war is inenvitable, Ft. Sumter is ours by surrender, Ft. Pickens has been reinforced and was to be
attacked on the 15th...

Block 113.
A Union of Name

... What benefits can they have in view that they will introduce all the horrors of civil war into our country, think they, that they can compel the South into a union which they have so perfidiously disregarded. Oh! rather will every man
, woman and child perish upon the soil that gave them birth and from which they draw their sustenance rather than call down the curses of our free Forefathers upon the degenerate race who could stoop to ask admittance again into a union of name when there is hatred and treachery in the hearts of those with whom we have been United. (quote from CWD Quilt book by R. Youngs)

Sarah was only 16 years old when she wrote this entry. Her diary entries are lengthy and very informative.

Fabrics which I used are Kaye England's In the Manor (green), Nancy Gere's Civil War VI (sugarplum&black; I really love this one) and centre square's very, very light green is from Mary Rose coll. 13. by Quilt Gate.

I had interesting week with CWD blocks. I hope that you have enjoyed it too;)
.. after little break my CWD journey will continue...

... on the 30th of April, at the picket line
