Scotch Thistle


28620 Marsh Line

Scotch Thistle -   This quilt block is hung in recognition of and appreciation for the
pioneers of Scottish heritage that settled in the western Elgin area. The McCallum tartan border is a nod to BonnieÕs family who settled in the Crinan area (north of West Lorne). The thistle is also appropriate here, as this farm was owned
by the Fraser family. Roy Fraser purchased the Strathcona Creamery in Dutton, in 1906. This is where their Thistle Brand butter was produced. The buttermilk, left over from the buttermaking process, was fed to his pigs housed in the barns on this farm until 1955.
