I do know, from inspection, that it was a much larger quilt than it is now. It appears that a few rows of blocks were cut down and a new binding attached. Other than that, the only other thing I can say about this quilt is that it is definitely a Nova Scotia quilt. The colours, the design, the quilting, the batting all appear to sing Nova Scotia. The turkey red has rotted away in every piece that it was used. The muslin is thin and the batting, whatever was used, is wadded in many spots. All this being said, it may be a bit of a wreck but it is very warm and soft and cuddly and still deserving of a place in my quilty home. Hopefully, some day, I will be able to have a good idea of when it was made. Any guesses?
