CIVIL WAR QUILTS from “Piecemakers Mechanicsville”

From member, Sharon Mills
My Daughter’s Quilt Guild had a wonderful speaker at their last meeting. Heather takes pictures for their website and has shared this with me. Thought those of you who love these old quilts might enjoy seeing the pictures.

“Can’t wait to see the Civil War quilts that were presented by Betsy Hulcher? They are on our Picasa site, I took 57 pictures in all of her quilts…. Be sure to check them out and be amazed all over again.
Betsy did not tell us why all the green and red quilts but her family use to be a stop on the stagecoach route, so we were all wondering if they got fabric in bolts since there was not a lot of scrappyness to them.
It was either 4 or 5 generations back she could document her family quilts. The quilts are in SUCH GREAT SHAPE.”
