Description
 
2011 marks the 150th anniversary of the beginning of the Civil War. And while conflict over slavery is generally presumed to be the cause, many issues across the nation fueled tensions that ultimately led to war. During this volatile period in American history, did women turn to their quiltmaking to take their minds off these troubling topics?

When Dolores Smith and Sarah Maxwell of Homestead Hearth found a mid-1800's antique sampler quilt, they could easily imagine the quiltmaker, Aurelia (pronounced oar-LEE-uh) Bevins of Broome, New York, did just that. Undoubtedly pieced over a long period of time based on the large number of varied fabrics it contains, it’s easy to imagine that Aurelia worked on this project off and on for many years as she witnessed a country heading toward war with itself.
