my parents received three of these wonderful quilts in 1948 when they were in desparate straits and they were very very grateful. It wasn't until just before her death I found one of them in my mothers linen cupboard. I got a very loud squawk of 'don't you dare throw that out,you were wrapped up in it when you were a baby'.I had never knowingly seen it before. So if it is not too late after 62years may I add my heartfelt thanks to all of the wonderful Canadian women who sewed so hard to make the world a better and warmer place for so many people and yes I still have the quilt. It was of my most treasured possessions. Thank You
