This is a similar Leave Quilt

Sorry it is a bad image, I need a new camera.
I went looking through my books and found this similar Leave quilt, it was made by Margaret ( surname unknown) in c1938
Chatham, Ontario.

The book is called Ontario's Heritage Quilts by Marilyn I. Walker.
Oh there are some beautiful quilts to look at in this book, I love my books.



  1. No Christine, see my comment under the Leaves quilt, last week. The one I based mine on is from the Denver Museum book, it had yellow sashings. I think there must have been lots of versions of it. Reading the text from the book, several companies put out their versions in the 1930's.
    I can scan it, but is that legal? Cheers, Kim McL

  2. A similar pattern was published in the January/February 1995 Quiltmaker Magazine. It was a reproduction of one made in the 1930's in Bonnie Leman's collection. (I cannot believe I knew where this was in the file cabinet!)

  3. Chritine, I should have read your post carefully! Sorry about that, I thought you were asking if that was the book the original quilt was in - this is what happens when I try to do two things at once. I was meant to be doing my day job and sneaking looks into the blog at the same time!! Now I've managed to do this blogging, it is getting to be a bit of a problem - although a nice one.
    There must be lots of people who love this quilt!
    Cheers, Kim
