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.

Sewing is my passion and I always have a notion to sew, but sometimes I get distracted with other crafty endeavors. I share my creative accomplishments (and sometimes failures) here on my blog. I am a licensed Martha Pullen beginning sewing instructor and serger instructor. For 5 years, I taught new owners how to use their Bernina sewing machines at my local Bernina dealer, and for 2 years I taught serger project classes at my local Baby Lock dealer. These days, my professional time is spent retailing handmade purse and bag making supplies and patterns. I also sell a small selection of fabric as well as my handmade bags and purses.
