One of Jewell's most celebrated and published quilts, was designed in honor of her three adopted daughters, Marion, Luella and Nancy BearWalker of Browning, MT. This is their heritage of the nomadic Blackfeet tribe who lived on the northern plains of Montana at the base of Glacier National Park. "What did these women use for diapers?" Well, I would be most happy to tell you.
