Mid-Nineteenth Century Cartoon Coverlet

This is a detail from another of the exhibits at the American Museum.  The appliqué picture is of a family out for a walk, complete with wailing baby and grumpy dad.

The book I have says the coverlet was made in Saratoga, New York by Mrs. Peter Porter (Martha Vail) Wiggins.
