Story: 

"Collected in Woodville, Texas, but originally from Indiana, USA. I was told then that the pattern was called 'Our Village Green'. The brown triangles have disintegrated (caused by iron in the dye). Quite a few of the fabrics are shirting." [irma Whitford] The quilt is currently being used.
