Momma Newt passed away in 1995 two years before my wedding so since I was the only one in the family who didn't receive a Lone Star made my Momma Newt my mother gifted me with the one she and Daddy received some 40+ years before. ;)
I'm so lucky to have such a special and meaningful treasure. I love all of my "Momma Newt Quilts" especially this one! So last year when it was time to hit the road runnin' to evacuate for Hurricane Ike, I couldn't take EVERY quilt... but y I grabbed up this one along with a few others and loaded em up in the passenger's side around the computer. They made for good padding and I knew I just couldn't live with out them if our home flooded.
