Civil War Parallels
The town of Stow-on-the-Wold in the British Cotswolds made a Civil War quilt for Appomattox, Virginia last year.
"The pioneering patchwork is a surprise present from Stow-on-the-Wold to US town Appomattox, Virginia. The colourful ‘Civil War’ quilt celebrates a newly-forged ‘friendship link’ based on an historical parallel. Stow staged the final battle of the 1st English Civil War, in 1646, and the Battle of Appomattox Court House was the last in the American Civil War in 1865 – marking its 150th [in 2015]."
British readers can tell us if the kids are
wearing Roundhead hats.
I like it that they chose William Morris prints for the quilt
(especially like it that they are MY William Morris prints.)
The border is "Anemone" from the Best of Morris line last year.
