At first glance this vibrant Little Gem may look like a Crazy Quilt, but is rather twenty embroidered blocks surrounded by a gorgeous, beautifully wrought hand-crocheted red edge. 

Inscribed "Susanna Himmelberger," we don't know if Susanna was the maker; she may have been the recipient of the quilt as a gift.

There are two dates embroidered onto the quilt: 1888 and 1889. "1889" appears along the left edge near the center. Next to it is another triangle onto which is embroidered a set of initials: "ESL".

We have found the genealogical history of the very likely actual Susannah Himmelberger, and will share it with the lucky buyer of this wonderful quilt.
