I assembled the quilt from squares that my mother cut out using a 3 x 3 inch piece of cardboard. I found the bag of squares when going through old fabric of my mother's. Mom always wanted to make a quilt but never got further than lining up a few rows making a small packet of fabric squares. She cut the pieces out in the late 60's and early 70's. But much of the fabric is much older.

Why and where was the quilt made; source of info
