This is a 19th century patchwork charm quilt, including  patches printed with an image of Queen Victoria to celebrate her 1887 Jubilee. 

These illustrative patches came from a cheap printed cotton with an allover design of Queen Victoria (from a photograph by Bassano) sold to make patriotic clothing to celebrate the Jubilee. There is a panel in the V&A museum -  https://collections.vam.ac.uk/item/O78774/fabric-unknown/

The quilt was never completed - there is no lining, but this means the interesting paper linings to the patches can be seen.  

There are several dusty marks and one small dark stain to one of the red patches. Apart from this good condition.
