This is a quilt recently donated to the Indian Territory Museum by my cousin Billy. It was given to her as a graduation present in 1952, by her grandmother, Mrs. R.L. (Clara) Simmons. The quilt was given to Clara by her employer, Mrs. Henry Bass (Ruby Mae Potts). Mr. Bass owned a grocery store in Caddo. The quilt was originally made by someone in Ruby’s family, possibly her grandmother.
I love the details and the color! Most of the quilt is in pretty good shape. I'm sure visitors to the museum will enjoy viewing it.
