If The Baby Quilt Lady had been around then, you can bet that George’s favorite quilt would have been designed with cherry trees and sailboats to represent significant moments in his life.

Paul Revere Used Two Quilts
It was pretty chilly in Massachusetts, even in April, when Paul Revere took off on his midnight ride. You can be sure he had his hand-sewn baby quiltfastened around his shoulders, and you know his faithful horse had his own quilt to keep him warm and strong.
If The Baby Quilt Lady had sewn Paul’s quilt, she would have used the softest baby flannel and the best quality thread, so that the quilt would stand up to the rough ride of this heroic copper smith who galloped through Middlesex County sounding the alarm that the Brits were coming. It’s the same technique she uses to create the rugged endurance her quilts need to withstand a baby’s rough play and modern-day laundering procedures.
