Civil War Generals' Wives BOM - Month Seven


Here's the seventh of twelve blocks for this quilt.  It has a number of little pieces and I really like the look of the block.  This one is to commemorate Mrs. Pauline Clark Mosby, wife of General John S. Mosby (The Gray Ghost).  Now if  you know your Civil War Generals, you know that John S. Mosby never attained the rank of General.  He was a Colonel.  If you are so inclined to check it out, DH pointed out to me that Colonel Mosby's mug graces the cover of the April 2012 edition of Civil War Times.  Yes, yes you can stop chuckling now - I admit it.  Civil War Times magazine is delivered to our mailbox six times per year.

So is the quilt now called The Generals' Wives and One Colonel's Wife Quilt?  Probably not.
