DOVE OF PEACE, 6″, Light

This is a block drafted by Ruby McKim for her mail order customers and newspaper readers some time in the 1920s – 1930s. Hall also used this name in 1935 when she included it in her book.

I was preparing this pattern form something else, when I heard the terrible news about the attack in Manchester yesterday. It seemed apt to use it here. Praying for peace.
