Other Notes: Cover of Canada Quilts, February 1992, - A Victorian Crazy Quilt from about 1900, from the collection of the Ontario Agricultural Museum. The quilt was given to the museum by Lewis Laird of Mississauga and nothing is known of its history. One wonders who could I.H., 1886, have been, and is he or she the quiltmaker, or the person being mourned in the patch with grave marker and sad vines. Page 1.
