The history of this Crazy quilt is in part linked to what is, no doubt, romantic myth. Like other examples, it incorporates some mosaic piecing in a border that sits between the areas of Crazy work. Research has established that it was probably made as a table cover and backed later, when it most likely became a curtain or door cover, as was highly fashionable at the end of the nineteenth century. The heavy embellishment includes an assortment of embroidery stitches, spangles, sequins, beads, and winding braid. Penny McMorris refers to the latter as "found particularly in English crazy work."
