Quilt Block in Honor of St. Elizabeth Ann Seton
St. Elizabeth Ann Bayley Seton, S.C., (August 28, 1774 – January 4, 1821) was the first native-born citizen of the United States to be canonized by the Roman Catholic Church (September 14, 1975). She established the first Catholic school in the nation, at Emmitsburg, Maryland, where she founded the first American congregation of Religious Sisters, the Sisters of Charity.
This 12" x 12" quilt block features a school in honor of St. Elizabeth Ann Seton's founding of the first Catholic School in the United States. This would make a great quilt block for your favorite teacher!
