I have a family member who has written a quilt/history book about Elizabeth Patton Crockett. She was the second wife of Davy Crockett and happens to be my 5th great grandmother.

Elizabeth made a quilt top that was in the family for years and years. It was donated to the Alamo and is part of their collection.

My family member went to the Alamo, took photos of the quilt and reproduce it in period style fabric. She has the history of the quilt and the pattern in her book. I have ordered it and thought some quilters (especially ones from Texas) might be interested in obtaining a copy.

Look here to order a copy
