Spirit of St. Louis quilt

Spirit of St. Louis quilt
Date: 1930s
Quilt in the "Spirit of St. Louis" pattern, made of red, white, and blue cotton fabric. Tricolor blocks, with quilted eagles in the white squares. The block design originally appeared in a 1934 edition of the magazine "Farm Journal." It was named for the plane that Charles Lindberg flew across the Atlantic Ocean in 1927. The unmistakable swastika pattern in the block was a popular symbol of luck among aviators and appeared in the original propeller spinner on Lindberg's plane. Lora Wedd of Spring Hill, Kansas, made this quilt in the mid-1930s for her son, Ralph Henry Wedd, Jr. Soon after Lora completed the quilt, the Nazi Party took power in Germany. The party's use of the swastika as its symbol led Mrs. Wedd to put the quilt in storage. Ralph Wedd, Jr., received the quilt when his mother entered a nursing home. His wife donated it to the Kansas Historical Society.
