A Texas man made an historical discovery when he uncovered a long-forgotten box of fabrics in his grandmother’s house.  Little did he know that eight quilt squares would be of great ancestral significance.  Jack was a direct descendant of Waubonsie, chief of the Potawatomi Indian Nation.  The eventually completed quilt brought him closer to his Indian ancestors.
