History: 

The cot quilt was made by Lenore Myrtle Howes (1913-1999) In Nebraska USA in 1942. It was then owned by her daughter and now her grand-daughter. It is not used.

Story: 

"My grandmother probably made this cot quilt for her first child, my mother, born in Nebraska in 1942. War time shortages probably account for the lack of batting. I remember using it as a 'doll' quilt as a child." [Shari Jamieson]
