Confederation Quilt
The Confederation Quilt was stitched together by dressmaker Fannie Parlee from offcuts of silk and velvet fabric leftover from the gowns made for the women who attended the Confederation Ball in Charlottetown, Prince Edward Island, in 1864. Sewn in the "crazy quilt" style consisting of multiple squares, the artifact is in the collection of the Kings County Museum in Hampton, New Brunswick.
