Doris Rattay made this quilt in 1956. Doris said she had a creative mind and this quilt was pieced together according to her 'own instinct'. It was used on a cot and then stored and later used in Doris' sunroom. Doris Rattay donated it to The Pioneer Women's Hut. It is occasionally displayed in the museum.


Cot quilt constructed of rectangles of orange, red and yellow striped material and ruched yellow taffeta. It is pieced so the stripes follow alternate directions. The top, bottom and sides are long strips of the same material. The pattern is repeated on the back. The edge is bound in ruched taffeta. The padding is a thick material.
