It is estimated that at least 618,000 Americans on both sides died during the Civil War*... and these casualties exceed the nation's loss in all its other wars, from the Revolution through Vietnam.
I thought it appropriate to make a "Memory Wreath" block to include in my quilt...
This block was made with templates... or paper patterns for those of us who started out as dressmakers. It wasn't much fun trying to fussy cut the little triangles but the block went together smoothly.
