    Mammy's Quilt Top

    This quilt will go to Okemah, Ok to the Okfuske County Museum and the library. This quilt top was created by my grandmother (Mammy). A picture and my grandmother and my grandfather will go on it. My Mammy created the top and I finished it. The bricks are represented by: My grandfather John Alexander and my Uncle Frank laid the brick down Main St. in the town of Okemah. My grandfather was also the Indian Agent.

    Your Mammy certainly made a beautiful quilt. I love the story behind it and the meaning of the bricks.

    What a wonderful memory - the bricks you created are the perfect border. So glad this quilt and the story behind it will be shared with others.

    Lovely quilt!
    A dog is not "almost human" and I know of no greater insult to the canine race than to describe it as such.
