Sampler by Dorothea Klein Lemley,
Sheboygan, Wisconsin, blocks 1861-1865,
possibly assembled later,
from my book Civil War Women.
Over the past year I've been collecting photos of quilts actually made during the Civil War by Union and Confederate quiltmakers. I've also got a file of commemoratives made after the War.
Mary Rockhold Teter's quilt
from a pattern in Peterson's Magazine in 1861
---now in the Smithsonian collection
When I discovered the online bulletin board Pinterest I thought a board might be a good way to display these. Each picture is linked to the website where I found it.
I'll add to it as I find more pictures.
