After doing a bit of research, we learned about the US Sanitary Commission and their work during the Civil War in 1863. They put a request out to the women of the United States to make cot size quilts for the soldiers. The estimated number made was between 150,000-250,000 and out of that number only 4 are known to have survived.
So here are two "Civil War" quilts made from the patterns used by the women during the American Civil War. This civil war is between the U of O Ducks from Eugene Oregon and the OSU Beavers from Corvallis Oregon. My quilt is on the right!!! The beautiful green and yellow.
