Circa 1930-40. Note: Ruby S. McKim was a nationally known quilt designer of the 1920s and 1930s.


Overall good condition with a few scattered areas of spotting and one area of staining to the upper right corner. Some areas on the lower margin appear as staining but are actually areas that are part of the original design that were not embroidered.
