Crazy quilt made of irregularly shaped dark fabrics, mostly wool. All pieces are outlined in embroidered feather stitching, and each block is embroidered with a different figure, including hearts, flowers, birds, and a child's hand. There also are two sets of initials, "MDJ" and "LBJ." Backed with brown/tan plaid cotton flannel. Made by Elizabeth Sevier Joynes from pieces of clothing worn by her children, circa 1896. Elizabeth was born in Tennessee in 1860 and married John Gaston Joynes in 1883. They settled in Neosho County, Kansas, and had seven children before John died in 1895.
