Crazy Quilt

When I was in Pennyslvania I took a tour of some of the sorounding areas while Tim was at his geology convention. The tour guide told us wives tons of fascinating facts about the towns and their significance in American history. We visited a little town called Ligonier where there was an old fort that had something to do with George Washington (the tour guide read it all so it became quite boring rather quickly). Anyway, we got to shop and I found this beautiful little quilt in an antique shop. The tag said it was made in the 1880's. It's made of silk and velvet and has very few imperfections. I plan to have it appraised.
