The following is scripted in embroidery on the quilt:
“Long, long ago...
In the time of the ancient Comanche nation, there came a great famine to the land. The chiefs and all the people sacrificed and made offerings to the Great Spirit that the famine might be broken. Among the many gifts, was the doll of a small little girl—her only possession.
The Great Spirit recognized the gift of the small girl as the greatest sacrifice of all and the famine was broken. The Great Spirit acknowledged the gift by sending the Bluebonnets to cover the land and continues to do so each year.
May the Bluebonnet always remind us to acknowledge and be thankful for the many gifts bestowed upon us.”
