“Golden Dahlia,” a quilt made by Veronica Engelmeier in the early 1950s and now owned by her daughter, Rose Troxel of Otter Rock, is on display now through April in the Log Cabin Museum, 545 SW Ninth St. in Newport.

The pattern, copyrighted in 1934, might have come from Capper’s Farmer and Farmer’s Wife, a magazine the family received. Engelmeier made her first “Golden Dahlia” quilt about 1937 and auctioned it off at a church fundraiser. After 1950, she made a quilt for each of the Engelmeier’s six children. Troxel chose the “Golden Dahlia” pattern.
