History

This quilt was made for my sister when she was a baby by my grandmother who was a very poor woman who had 7 children. Her husband was killed tragically in a mining accident leaving her destitute. My mother, Edna Albert Burge (now gone) was so very proud of this quilt loving put together by her mother for her first baby. When my mother died I found it wrapped securely in a closet with several of her other prized possessions. My sister for whom it was made, Linda Burge Chaput is also now gone. I am very concerned with the disposition of this quilt when I am gone.

Description
