The Mounties always get their Man !!!

Each Christmas I bring out this favourite old quilt and reflect on its history.
It is made from the worsted serge fabric from the uniforms of the Canadian Mounted Police and is most unique and quite rare from my research.
I purchased it from an antique dealer at the Houston Quilt Market about 20 years ago and its date was the late 1800's when the Mounties were called North Eastern Mounted Police .
It is a log cabin design, rather faded, roughly sewn and tied with wool
- and I think it is fabulous !!
