This album quilt was presented to Eli Hoke, a young school teacher at Sunnyside School in Union Township, Miami County in 1894. This quilt might have been a wedding gift since Hoke married Sarah Ann Heckman the following year. Inscriptions on the quilt reference friendship rather than weddings and marriage.
