Detail of a post Civil War quilt
made by a Union veteran and his wife.
I missed seeing the exhibit Loyal Hearts of Illinois a few years ago.
So I am glad to find an online catalog.
The catalog is in the Illinois State Museum's publication
The Living Museum, Spring 2013.
Click here to see a file:
On the right you'll see page numbers of the magazine.
The catalog is pages 2 to 30. Click on each page to read the labels and see the quilts
that were in the show.
See those small arrows under the window. Click on those to
make the window larger or smaller. Experiment to find the best
viewing size, etc for quilts and captions.
Do enlarge the pictures to see the detail in these lovely quilts
The names of the veterans above
appear on the GAR flag quilt below.
Items sold at Sanitary Fairs.
A corncob pincushion?
I can see it with yellow yo-yos.
