"The Nine Patch pattern quilt blocks were put together with no apparent order, yet the cheerful colors of the fabrics give this basic utility quilt a jaunty air. It was made by Margaret Bradshaw Trevethan of Ontario, Canada, 1900-1920."
"The Bear's Paw pattern quilt may have been made by Elizabeth Nickless Cole. Born about 1904, she lived in both Birch Run and Clio , Michigan. The bright pastels and floral prints are typical of the 1920s through the 1940s."
"The Four Patch variation crib quilt with the blocks set on point was made by Gertrude Tucker Willison for her daughter Adelaide. Adelaide was born on May 20, 1894 in Flint. The spool-style crib was used by Adelaide, her mother Gertrude, and her aunt Carrie Tucker Handerson, 1860-1900."
