Rectangular quilt with multi-coloured, scalloped edges is quilted in a multicoloured version of the "wedding ring" pattern that consists of intertwined circles.
Notes:
Made by Mrs. Martha Middleton (nee Remus), of Prussian descent. She married Mr. Harry H. Middleton. Mrs. Middleton was born in Alice Township in 1845, and died in Pembroke, ON in 1971. For most of her life she was a homemaker, but also worked as a stenographer at Pembroke Shook Mills (Abitibi Paper Mills). She lived in Pembroke, ON, this quilt was made there in 1948. This quilt has never been washed, and it has been used only for guests. The owner's mother put her uniform from nursery school in the corners of the quilt. Martha Remus would make quilt tops at her cottage on the Ottawa River while on vacation in the summer. She would set up her quilts to work under the trees it it was too sunny. She quilted outside and the neighbourhood children would help.
