I'm so happy about my crazy quilt find.  Today I was at our state quilt guild meeting.  They had a silent auction which included 2 crazy quilts.  I thought they were beautiful and decided to bid on them.

One was small, made primarily of silks and velvets, dated 1894. 

The other one is a 60" x 79" 12-block crazy quilt, made of wools and various other fabrics, dated 1892. 

I won the bids, and am now the happy owner of these 2 crazy quilts.  I'm not certain that the dates on them are accurate but some of the fabrics look like they could be.
