1885 Crazy Quilt Project

1885 Crazy Quilt, originally uploaded by espeedy123.

My mom recently gave me this quilt that’s been in my family for over 100 years. It had the following note with it:

All hand made
Crazy quilt pattern
Good example of featherstitching
Made about 1885
Mrs. Ebenezer Jane (Zane?) Reed
and Hand Painted in Oil by her daughter
Carrie Reed
(formerly) Property of Mrs. Leonard C. McCrary
1852 Springhill Ave.

I am working on figuring out how to conserve and display it.
