Here's a little prize - just right for dolly and her bed. The Victorian crazy quilt features a large silk embroidered square in the center with Kate Greenaway figures toiling in a garden. Surrounding the figures are embroidery stitches in numerous stitch patterns.

The backing of the quilt is a cotton floral fabric which has been pieced to fit. Size of the quilt is 12" x 14".

My guess, and just an opinion, the little quilt has been taken from a larger quilt and adapted for a child for her doll bed. Possibly, even the child, herself might have tredle stitched the backing on to the silk square as this part of the quilt is not as precisely made.

Nevertheless, it is adorable. It also enforces the thought that our thrifty ancestors did not let anything go to waste.
