History: 

The present owner, Sharon Lord, found this quilt in the basement of a Toronto, Canada, home following the death of her Mother in 1994. Mrs. Howatt's neighbour was an avid quilter and could have made the quilt and it is also possible it was made by Mrs. Howatt's aunt ,Alice Hockley who lived north of Toronto. It is not used.

The quilt is called 'Loved'. The pattern is log cabin and it is made from dress materials and pyjama flannelette. The original filling was a heavy woollen blanket (now flannelette) and the backing is green headcloth - all government issue. With its restoration, the backing was supplemented with a green floral, and the quilt is now tied. The quilt is machine pieced, some restoration work is done by hand.

This quilt is allover crazy patchwork not done in squares. Many pieces are awkward shapes. In the centre is a 150 x 150mm square of squares each 25mm repeating some of the materials in the quilt. Most of the materials are velvets, satins and silks. There is a border of red and green patterned wool and all seams are feather stitched in a thick gold thread. The padding is thought to be flannelette and the backing is polished cotton in faded red and green.
