Civil War Generals’ Wives BOM – Month Five

Block five in this historical quilt series is ode to Irene Boggs (Dent) Grant, our 18th First Lady and wife of General (& President) U. S. Grant.   Bringing elegance and grace to the White House, Mrs. Grant was quite the socialite and hostess.  Her memoirs were published in 1975 – I may have to locate a copy as her story has peeked my interest.

I like this block very much.  I’m particularly drawn to the pinwheel in the middle of the star.
