I left off on Cora Owens Hume's chapter. Just doing a quick web search I was able to find a lot on Cora, census records etc. Cora lived in Kentucky. She and her family were southern sympathizers.Cora was wealthy and well educated. She was 14 years old when she started her diary. The block that I worked on for today is called 'Grammar Class'. In this diary entry, Cora writes about her classes and names some of her classmates. It's dated February 7, 1863.

|Here are my pile of block pieces, all ready to be trimmed.|

of the blocks together.

Have a wonderful week! Remember to post your progress on the Civil War Diary Quilt Group on Flickr.
Next Saturday I will be working on the block called 'Misfortune' out of Rosemary's book. Today I am at quilt retreat working on all sorts of quilty fun! I packed my Civil War Diary Quilt and Red and White quilt to work on along with a couple of items for Quilt Camp. I'm hoping to come back with all sorts of fun things to share with you!
Happy quilting and perfect stitches to you!
