Designer: Judy A. Brenneman, www.patternsfromhistory.com/civil_war/cot_quilt.htm, used with written permission.

Materials/Techniques: Machine quilted with clear nylon using cotton fabrics and a cotton/poly batting.

Artist Statement: With the Civil War approaching, family member Lydia decided to follow her husband into battle as a nurse. I often wonder how life changed for this young woman and how her caregiving changed her perspective on life. Taking a cue from this Civil War cot quilt, I downsized the pattern to 2 blocks to make a table runner. The next downsizing yielded 1 blocks for an AAQI miniature.

Dedication: Dedicated to Lydia Church Dickinson, a devoted battlefield nurse.

This quilt has Fast Finish Triangles.

This quilt earned $46.19 for the AAQI.
