I have in my possession a very old Victorian Quilt made of satins, velvets, ribbons. I would like to trace the lady who made it. There are three ribbons sewn to the quilt.
The writing on the first ribbon/maroonish red:
Seventieth Anniversary, I.O.O.F., Kansas City, MO, April 26, 1889
The second ribbon is a white political grosgrain ribbon with writing:
VOTE for Hon.Jno F. Morton for Senator
The third ribbon is a teale blue with writing:
I feel that perhaps the owner of this quilt who originally made it with a labor of love could possibly be the wife of John F. Morton. He was either a member of the I.O.O.F or was asked to be a Grand Marshall in a I.O.O.F. parade.
I would like to find anyone connected to this beautiful Victorian Quilt with beautiful embroidery connecting the fabrics, sometimes called a "crazy quilt".
