This quilt was collected by Cuesta Benberry to further her reseach
on African American quiltmaking. Her son donated the collection
to the Michigan State University Museum when she passed away in
2008. Cuesta Benberry wrote: "This is the first quilt I
ever purchased." The maker is unknown but it is believed
that the quilt was made in Iowa.
