Chatelaine- Free BOW Sampler Quilt Block 52
The living and working conditions of the plantations slaves, appalled her. She tried to improve conditions and often challenged her husband, regarding the treatment of slave families. Her marriage ended, due to many disagreements and in 1863, during the Civil War she published her anti-slavery Journal of a Residence on a Georgia Plantation 1838-1839 which became her best known work in the United States.
Go Fanny! This block is a pretty representation of those "contrary" woman who stayed true to their own beliefs, during that time.
