The fabrics are so faded you can barely see them, and the quilt itself is so tattered it's painful, but it has the best story and that makes it my favorite.
When she was in second grade, Grandma ran away from school. She went to the top of a hill near her house and refused to come back down.
Aunt Clara (who would have been Great Grandma Walters's sister, if you're keeping track of the family tree) made this quilt to bribe her.
That story has got to be one of the best quilt stories ever. (I might be just a little biased.)
There's no batting between the layers. I think that was is there is flannel. If this quilt was made in a hurry, I wonder if that's all Aunt Clara had on hand or if this was what she always used.
Be sure to come back tomorrow afternoon. I've got more quilts to show you!
