This charming wholecloth doll quilt is made of a fabric with medallions of rather droll scenes. One has a smiling cat with the caption "They are trying to make a pet of me". Another is a cat with a monocle labeled "Quite English you know". Yet another shows someone making a shadow puppet but the image reflected is unrelated to what he is creating. The quilt is tied; very good condition. Measurements are 12" x 14"> Pennsylvania origin; circa 1880's.
