Crazy Quilt Made By Aunt Minnie Day

This is a crazy quilt made by my Great Aunt,Minnie Day.It is dated 1883-1895.There are many initials embroidered on it,which I expect are family and friends.It is made from many types of fabrics,silk,velvets etc.Minnies sister was Eliza Day-Henderson my grandmother.She was a seamstress and I expect most of the fabric was leftover pieces from the dresses and gowns Eliza made.Most every piece has something embroidered on it.This quilt was passed down to me,I suppose as I am a quilter and interested in quilts.
