Snowball or Flagstones by the Country School Quilters
The Country School Quilters in Montpelier, Virginia, have been making quilts for veterans from my Union Blues reproduction prints.
This is NOT them but they are following in the tradition.
This photo from the Chicago History Museum
is of the Springfield Ladies' Aid Society in 1863.
The Country School Quilters have staged a few Sew-a-thons to make small quilts in simple patterns.
Here's the January 2016 block

Nine Patch with a Four Patch set.
I think they planned borders for all of these but ran out of time.
Betsy pieced the HourGlass to raise funds for batting and backings.
I'm pleased to see my left-over fabrics go to such a good use.
