|These are three layers. As I straighten them I am pinning them together.|
I have a special place in my heart for comforters made this way because as a little girl when we stayed on the Neukam farm off Limpkin Road between Logootee and Haysville, I slept in a huge Oak Sleigh bed with a tied comforter of many dark velvets. I thought it the most special and wonderful bed in the world. And, my Grandma Neukam could sew, and she made many little dresses for me as a little girl out of feed sacks. The feed companies packed the feeds for the livestock in lovely cotton prints and Grandma whipped many a little dress for me. I remember most of them very well and my favorites were what I called "Sailor Dresses" because they had a big square collar like sailor whites have. She often either lined them with a contrasting color or made the collar with a contrasting color.
