Truly the last 2 blocks unless I screw something up



H is for hospital

Actually a yellow flag with a green H signified that it was a hospital and should not be fired upon, but as you see not the colors  I used here.  Every large building was used as hospitals like hotels.




This is one of my favorite designs.  This block was given the name Kentucky Crossroads in an early-twentieth-century magazine.  Info was taken from Barbara Brackman's Civil War Sampler.  Her source for this block was a clipping in an old scrapbook.  All her books show an enormous amount of research and they not only have beautiful patterns for the blocks but are a wealth of information and enjoyable to read.




Putting the top together begins...

hugs, LJ
