Wild and Crazy Quilt

A truly strange and wonderful and crazy quilt! I'd love to meet the maker of this quilt. She (or he) enjoyed cheater fabric (preprinted or faux patchwork) and animals as much as me.

 And how many quilts include appliqued pigs? Sowee :)  The red mariner's compass next to the horse is a cheater print, the sunflowery one is pieced.
Dated 1887, sampler. Love the cross block in the center echoed by the 2nd red/brown pieced cross.

  1. Love whimsical quilts. This would make a great "potholder" quilt too.
