Story: 

"I received this quilt after my mother died (North Platte, Nebraska, Sept 2000). It was found in the closet. My maternal grandmother died in December 1999 and I don't know if this quilt came from her or if my mother got it somewhere else". [Shari Jamieson]

The quilt is called 'Loved'. The pattern is log cabin and it is made from dress materials and pyjama flannelette. The original filling was a heavy woollen blanket (now flannelette) and the backing is green headcloth - all government issue. With its restoration, the backing was supplemented with a green floral, and the quilt is now tied. The quilt is machine pieced, some restoration work is done by hand.
