Provenance and Protocol but no picture

I'm not sure of the protocol of thanking each person who comments separately since not everyone has a link to email so I'd like to say a very big thank you to each person who took the time to post a comment.  They're all very nice and I appreciate you taking the time to post.

My other question is does anyone know know the provenance of this quilt?  I'm just curious if we know the era or the maker. 


  1. Here is the the website of the gal that owns the original quilt.
    It goes a ways back and she tells you what she does and what she doesn't know about it along with all the investigation she is doing with each block before she offers it up free to us. As for the comments, I too wish I could respond to everyone's comment, but I think we all know that we are enjoying the process of this quilt and appreciate all the comments we, your welcomed and thank you to everyone participating. I love seeing this blog grow by leaps and bounds.

  2. I think I read some place that the blocks may have been made by a number of different people - hence the various styles of blocks.

  3. Wendy, I think that was something that some of us were just guessing at since some of the blocks are so simple and some are more complex. It certainly looks like it could be a group project, but I don't know if Gay (the owner) knows for sure.
