~ Came with a Note ~
Sandy McPherson bought this quilt from a seller in Iowa City in 1996.
There's a hand written paper tag attached, which reads:
"Strip plaid, watermelon strips between. Unknown pieced pattern. Plaids, wools
from Southern Ontario, the northernmost point on the Underground Railroad.
Black-red check is Rob Roy tartan. Two sizes of tartan are Stewart, Royal."
Tied rather than quilted, and with a small amount of hand embroidery.
Unusual Bars back with some exuberant floral print.
Very Good Condition.
