Smells like quilt spirit

Welcome to my new purchase. This is a mystery quilt indeed . Was ahorse and buggy blanket according to the original seller on eBay. But it was hidden beauty. There was a quilt inside. You can see the feed sack coverings, the red and blue. Inside once unpicked, here is the quilt too! It smells…
