Crazy Quilts

Crazy Quilt

Crazy quilts became popular in the late 1800s. They were often made from scrap pieces that were different sizes, shapes, colors, and fabrics. There were no set patterns or designs to these quilts.

Maude Upham’s Cart

If the dimensions of this cart strike you as smaller than usual, they should because it was custom built on St. George Street in the 1930’s for a little person by the name of Maude Upham. As such, this pony cart is slightly smaller, in most respects, than its counterparts. The fur wrap, pictured atop the cart, is much older, dating back to the 1800’s and would have been used to keep a baby warm.
