Custodial history

The quilt was donated to the Westport District Museum in 2001. The name of the donor was not recorded. It was offered to the Olivet Baptist Church in Westport in 2011 but not accepted when the names on the quilt were identified as not being from that church. It was identified as belonging to Olivet United Church near Seeley's Bay at that time. In 2019 it was transfered to LTI Archives to be with an earlier signature quilt from the same church.

Scope and content

Item consists of a white cotton quilt 100" x 120" with 650 signatures embroidered in red and blue. Documentation accompanies it listing all the names on the quilt and the amounts collected from the subscribers.
