This quilt was inherited by John and Terri Dickey from his mother Ruth Simms Dickey (1894-1989) and her sister Lillian Simms Ssuiter (1886-1987). They inherited quilts from their mother Alice Bay Simms 1864-1949, Gallia Co. Ohio. None of these ladies quilted although it was thought Alice Simms' sisters did. It is not known who the quilters were.
