Pieced cotton quilt in Wild Goose Chase pattern. Design incorporates nine very large pieced blocks of orange fabric alternating with whole blocks of plain white cotton. Appliqued vine border on two opposing edges. Hand-stitched and quilted overall with feather medallions on a grid. White cotton binding and backing. Batting is probably cotton. This quilt was made by Belinda McQuaid of North Henderson, Illinois, who bought the fabric with $6.00 given to her by fiancé Daniel Webber before the Civil War. Daniel did not return from the war, apparently deserting from the Illinois 4th Cavalry in 1863. Belinda married Daniel's older brother, Benjamin (also a Civil War veteran) in 1866, and in the late 1870s the quilt came with them to Norton County, Kansas.
