This article focuses on a Dear Bart quilt block representing U.S. author Harriet Beecher Stowe. Harriet was a 22-year-old Ohio schoolteacher visiting a pupil in Kentucky when she saw a slave auction in Washington, Kentucky in 1833. Eighteen years later during a church service she felt an inspiration to write about the awful injustices of slavery. She titled her book Uncle Tom's Cabin. Stowe was a woman far ahead of her time. By 1850 when she began writing Uncle Tom's Cabin she was already an accomplished author at a time when a woman's role was to take care of the family and home, and not to be heard from publicly.
