Friends and relatives of Olive Farnsworth made this quilt for her in 1849. On each block they wrote their names, the date, and the towns where they lived – Brookline and Nashua, New Hampshire. A quilt like this took a great deal of work and was a very special present. Olive certainly treasured it throughout her life as a reminder of her friends and family.
