Diana Larson wrote to recommend the American Girl Collection: 
"The American Girls Collection books are a great way for children (and adults) to learn about children living through different periods in American historyâAlthough the stories themselves are fictional, they are thoroughly researched, and each book concludes with a brief section containing factual information, photographs, and artwork about that particular time period..."

GEM:  Heritage Quilts 
                       Lenora HERRING              William Jefferson MOORE
                        Grandmother Pauline's Letters
                         The Quilt found in the suitcase
"This quilt is for Ronald L. Moore.   It is the last quilt his Grandmother Herring made before her stroke and death.  She loved him so much.  I love you so very much Ron.  I am so proud of you as a son.  All My Love, Mother"
A job started really by her mother Lenora Herring who had made the quilt.  From great grandmother Herring to my young daughters, the quilt had spanned five generations of us stubborn Moores, and brought us all back together again. 

Here's a photo of the flour sack quilt that Carolyn refers to in the video:

The quilts have always cared for the family - first warming them and then bringing them together, and now leading us to other ancestors we didn't know.  Women may not have had a lot of time to use the power of the pen to document history, but they did have some mighty powerful sewing needles!
Coming Soon: An expert quilter who will pass on some ideas for all of us on how to properly care for our heritage quilts.
