This month we will be studying the time period of the Industrial Revolution in America with the Mill Girls from Lowell, Massachusetts. Our history person is Harriet Hanson Robinson, a mill girl who wrote her autobiography years later. Our American history lesson involves some totally interesting events from that time period.

It is Baltimore Album Quilt History month as we work on blocks in Row D of Jennifer's quilt. There is SO much to learn about our local American history as we study our Maryland city of Baltimore during the 1840's. There was a particular style of applique going on then that has become a favorite of many appliquers today. These quilts of our history can tell quite a story!! Our demo will be an easy sample of this most interesting form of applique.

This month's special quilt is a BOM that we did here at the quilt shop several years ago. It is an original creation of Marti's, celebrating the poets, writers, and other special people (even a doggy named Sally) from our American Civil War Era. Join Marti for a video collage that she and Mike created to commemorate these special people. Without them, we would not know what we know about the Civil War in America. The name of my quilt is "One Country, One Destiny". These words were quilted on the inside of the coat worn by Pres. Lincoln the night that he was assassinated. We will be constructing Row E of our Harriet's Journey BOM this month.
