Approximately 4'x4' velvet, silk and damask crazy quilt. Exact date unknown, but pre- 1828, as that was immigration date. Made by my great x 4 aunt dressmaker in Austria or perhaps by her neice as a teaching tool. Edged in red velvet, backed in red silk, family rumor has it that it served as a shroud for an infant who died on the ship.
