This awesome Friendship Quilt came from an eBay seller in Camas, Washington, and the inscriptions indicate it was made in 1956 in Westfir, Oregon.
Although there are plenty of old quilts to be found for sale in Oregon, many are anonymous and not in good condition. It's something to crow about when you find a vintage, Oregon-made quilt that can be definitively traced to a maker or group of makers, and in good condition! The year 1956 is found in a few places, along with Westfir, Oregon, a town not far from Eugene to the southeast.
Love the ink inscription with the staff and G clef, and shout out to my Facebook friend Kay Sorensen- same family name. There are also several Abercrombie family members on the quilt.
The quilt is 66" x 80" and the pattern is called Friendship Quilt, Brackman #1648. The pattern was published by the Kansas City Star in 1934. Took a few moments to find it since the block looks a bit different in the drawing, with inscriptions in nine patches rather than one in the center.
Each of the 30 blocks has 21 pieces, and the sashing (with cornerstones) includes 113 pieces. The total number of pieces in the quilt is just under 750. An interesting quilt, great colors, and nice to find something made in Oregon.
