HistoryThe quilt was made by Ada M Samaniego in Colorado USA in 1930. It was a wedding quilt for her daughter, La Homa White. It is now owned by the maker's granddaughter, La Dona Anick in Australia. It is not used. "I treasure it because it was made by my grandmother and I only have the two quilts left that she has made. She was a very busy woman bringing up her own five and fostering others along the way. She never sat down in a chair that she didn't have something in her hand, crochet, quilting etc."
[La Dona Anick]
