    Wow, what a treasure. During the Civil War, she would have been only a teenager. Imagine the horrible sights and experiences she must have had!! Understandable that women long ago wanted to create some beauty in their everyday lives. You are fortunate to have it and know about it's history.

    I have a book on Tennessee quilts that was put out in the '80's. I'll check to see if there is an ongoing project of quilt documentation for the state. I'm also in the process of making a power point of family quilts and quilts that I have made. That way my kids will have the information.

    does it give you chills thinking of the history and the connection you share w/ previous generations? It does me.

    I hope there is a label on the back of the quilt sharing that story. If not, put one on there so that future generations will know the story.

    Powerpoint is great, but when i think of where technology has come, how do you know if they'll be able to access it in 50 yrs...
