Moths don't eat quilts unless they are either made of wool or quitled
over wool batting ... both unlikely.
Your visitors are not eggs; they are a larval case and pupa of something
or other, maybe  a fly ... if you check, you will see that the smaller
shell is empty.
I'd take a dustpan and brush or vacuum cleaner and remove them for
aesthetic reasons. Empty the vac. bag, or they'll come right out when
they mature.
