"25 Quilts in The River

25 Quilts in the River. that's the name of my new quilt.  The pattern is a Road to Oklahoma,
my aunt told me a story about how my Great Grandmother came to Oklahoma from Alabama in a covered wagon.  She was on a Ferry crossing the river into Oklahoma, when she realized that her team of horses couldn't pull the wagon up the hill once they were on the other side of the river, so she had to throw 25 quilts into the river.  She said the Indians came from everywhere to get the quilts out of the river.  She said she would have given them the quilts had she known they were watching her and wanted the quilts.....I told my Aunt, well she would be proud of me, I made of for her having to do that. lol.  So this quilt is dedicated to Grandma. (this is just the first 4 squares, it will be Queen size)
