Austen Family Album Quilt-Block #21 West Wind Done

This weeks block is West Wind dedicated to Tom Fowle - Jane's sister Cassandra's fiancé who died of yellow fever while serving as a chaplain.

As I was sewing the block together I realized that I had picked yellow fabric without even thinking about the significance!  

I also have a soft spot for Tom Fowle as my grandfather Edwin Stevens was a chaplain in England during World War II.  He did get sick while serving there but survived to come home to his family.  

Can't believe we are done with 21 blocks already. It has gone fast and I look forward to doing a new block each Sunday!
