Moran Crazy Quilt

It's in terrible condition.  The backing is gone, there are holes in it, and the silk is falling apart but it's what we have of a crazy quilt that was most likely stitched together by Fannie, Ida and Marion Moran, late 1890's.  The colors are still amazing.  I was hoping to find some embroidered initials and maybe a date but so far no luck.

  1. I bet those pieces of fabric have some stories behind them. It's a lovely quilt.
