Our Nifty Fifty groups did swaps on both the Civil War and Revolutionary War.  Each quilter designed their
own quilt block and made a signature square with a description of their design and the history behind it.
We had 33 categories in our Civil War Swap. The Revolutionary War Swap had 26 categories
which included the Thirteen Colonies
