Recently on The Rambling Boy:

Quilts! And the Texas Stories They Tell

Lonn Taylor reads lots of books about history, and recently read one about quilts — Katherine Jean Adams’ Comfort and Glory: Two Centuries of American Quilts.

On this edition of the Rambling Boy, Lonn tells us about a few Texas quilts, and what they reveal about both their makers and the times in which they were made.
