Repaired (see record) and foxed in places.
Badly faded and has large brown spot.

Judd Family Collection.

Contributor

Though this quilt came from a Judd family member it was purchased at a Woman's Board of Missions auction in the 1950s, so does not have a missionary provenance. Probably made by three ladies in Kohala. The quilt has three repairs on the front which are done so beautifully as to be invisible. Appraised by Elizabeth Akana (see donor file).
