Was from an ancestor of mine, its almost idential twin (same date, different initials) is at the Museum of Natural History. Just figured out what is was through some online searching. My grandmother used to display it in her foyer. Has some damage.
This coverlet is constructed of two panels, woven as one length, and joined with a center seam.
March 3, 1832
Size and dimensions of this item:

Was made for my 3rd great grandparents, Jacob and Effie Ferdon (JEFD intials on the coverlet). Effie's maiden name was Blauvelt, and her sister Rachel had one too (American Quilts & Coverlets in the Metropolitan Museum of Art)
