Old Tasmanian Quilt

Quite a few years ago I found this quilt in an antique shop in Hobart. The shop owner told me it was a very early Australian Crazy quilt.
I had forgotten all about it but unearthed it in in my big cleanout.
It is quite lovely and is made with velvets and silks (some have not lasted) the colours are still vibrant and it was obviously kept in a dark room or in a cupboard.
So I am bringing into Patchwork tomorow to display for a while.
