This quilt is unusual for its time. Each block was machine quilted before they were set together to make the quilt. Some of the blocks are inscribed: We Wish You Merry Christmas Mrs Haff 1873 (appliqued);
Harriet Smith, Mary Young, E. Hubbard, Nellie Bolr--ier, S G Benjamin, Mahala.Thurber, Sophis J. Wirk, Mary K. Smith (inked and embroidered).
