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 granddaughter. It is not used. "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]
