It was stitched with loving care, most likely to provide warmth and comfort to a family trying to brave another stark prairie winter. Its creator had no idea the 66-inch-by-80-inch quilt would one day be seen as a cloth symphony of one of the world’s darkest symbols. Swastikas, 27 in all, cover the quilt that was donated to the Greeley Museums late last year. Some are pink, others red, still more are tan and white. Museum officials say they think the quilt was created around 1900, certainly before the design was adopted as the national flag of Nazi Germany. It was found in a hope chest by members of a farming family. The family did not want to be contacted for this story. Museum manager Erin Quinn said she thinks the women who stitched the quilt probably put it away when Adolph Hitler was rising to power in the 1930s under the banner of the swastika.
