This bold red and white quilt in the Rob Peter to Pay Paul/ Orange Peel pattern is part of the Rocky Mountain Quilt Museum Permanent Collection. Along with the quilt, the museum has hand written notes that indicate that the maker was Mattie Carson, Kit Carson's sister. The date “1896” is embroidered on the quilt in red and it is thought to have been made in Mound City, Missouri. Although it is more than a century old, it looks very modern in its bold colors. <br><br>Debbie Lunsford of Oak Ridge, Tennessee donated it to the Rocky Mountain Quilt Museum in 2006.<br><br>

You've seen the commercial where the couple asks the babysitter, "Can I pay you in gum?!" Well, this actually happened, sort of... The Chimney Sweep patterned quilt pictured below was reportedly used by a young American Indian couple to pay a grocery bill at a store on Larimer Street in old Denver, Colorado around 1875. The owner of the store, William O. Perry, was the grandfather of Phyllis De La Castro of Conifer, Colorado, who donated the quilt to the Rocky Mountain Quilt Museum in 2002. The quilt features fabrics common to the third quarter of the 19th century.
In my humble opinion, the store owner got the better part of the deal!

I personally love this quilt. Just the right amount of color and very modern-looking even though it was made more than 130 years ago! It also looks great on the protective cases. Take a look...
