This is a quilt made by my Great *Great* Grandmother Weatherstone Milne. It was made in the 1870s. It is just a quilt top - hand sewn. One of the blocks has a piece of fabric in it that shows Queen Victoria and the date 1870. My Grandmother Milne was born in 1819 and died in 1911. She was born in Scotland and traveled to Canada by ship in 1832. She married my Grandfather in 1836. Their first son my Great* Grandfather David Milne moved to Lockport NY. His daughter married my Grandfather Judd. The quilt was handed down to my Great Grandmother Judd and then to my Mother and then to me. It is in beautiful condition - never been washed and for most of the life of the quilt was kept in a cedar chest. I am not sure when my Grandmother Judd received the quilt but my Mother said it was given to her in 1945. I am very proud to own this piece of history. I am thinking of contacting the Milne Association in Toronto to see if they would like the quilt. My Grandmother and the Milne family are a part of the Toronto history - their cemetery is in the Edwards Gardens there.
