This puzzle features the Crazy Quilt created in Mifflin or Lancaster County, Pennsylvania during the late 1800s--early 1900s by Lydia Hooley King (Amish American, 1814-1904).

The use of solid-colored fine wool fabric, known as batiste, is typical of Amish quilts from this area and time, but the bold manner in which Lydia Hooley King organized her quilt is distinctive: the orange-red grid has its intersections marked with X at the center of each patched block. The decorative border of reversed cones would not have been allowed by conservative Amish, suggesting that King belonged to a more liberal Amish community.
