This quilt is an example of a mid-19th century Friendship Quilt. According to family history, this quilt was passed down from Charles and Mary DuBois to their great-granddaughter, Evelyn DuBois Gueho. In 1859, Charles and Mary moved from Duboisville, a small town in Redford, Michigan to Utica, Michigan, a distance of 33 miles. Most likely, the quilt was made as a farewell remembrance for the family. In 1990, Evelyn DuBois Gueho donated the quilt to Historic Huguenot Street.
