I’ve been following Barbara Brackman’s Civil War Quilt Block of the Week commemorating the sesquicentennial of the Civil War. Each week Barbara includes a block signifying some portion or event of the Civil War as well as some related history.
We are on week 42 and the block this week is called H is for Hospital. It seems that during the Civil War, a flag with a yellow background and a green H was flown above the field hospitals. As Dustin on the Flickr Civil War group said, “What a gruesome place those hospitals must have been.”
Here is my H is for Hospital.
I understand that this block is also known as a Log Fence block. I was certainly glad to have an easy block this week! It seems I’ve got a lot of simultaneous projects going on!
Hope you’re have a great weekend and…
