Nothing!  

If you are saying that the filter is not working, that is a different issue.  Even though there is nothing wrong with

table1.filter := 'name = ' + edit1.text;

the filter will not work unless you set TDataset.filtered to True.  

In any case, tell what's wrong and how.  =)

I think you have to put the text in single quotes. (name = 'quake' instead of name = quake)
Right now your program is testing for equality of field 'name' and field 'quake', and of course the second one will not be found.  

Try this:
Table1.Filter := 'Name = ''' + Edit1.Text + '''';
