In 1925, an Old Order Amish community was established in north-central Wisconsin. Many of those who moved to the new community came from other Amish settlements in the Midwest, bringing their quilting traditions along with them. This quilt shares features with other Amish quilts from the Midwest, including the use of a black ground and the separation of the patterned squares by intervening plain squares.
