Velvet Album Quilt: Circa 1890;Maryland

Here is an Album Quilt like no other. It is done completely in velvets with images of fruits, flowers, animals and vegetables. The figure of a girl stands in the center. Perhaps these are some of her favorite things for who else has seen a quilt with beets; turnips; pears, oranges and carrots? It dates to the 1890's . The front is velvet with a backing of cotton sateen. They are in excellent condition. The satin binding has frayed. The quilt measures 60" x 74". It was found in Baltimore in a local estate.
