Infant’s embroidered quilt and duvet cover made by a Jewish immigrant

Object | Accession Number: 2012.72.2

Small red quilt enclosed in a white duvet made by Edna (Yetta) Kwasznik Eckstein, who immigrated to the United States with her young son from Ratno, Russia (Ratne, Ukraine) in 1912. They joined her husband, Sam, who had left Ratno in 1908 and settled in Denver, Colorado. The quilt is embroidered Good Luck Baby and may have been brought with her, but it is likely that it was made in the US.
