Antique - Victorian Crazy Quilts
Antique Crazy Quilts - This page will be devoted to both finished antique crazy quilts and crazy quilt tops. These old crazy quilts will include those made of cotton, wool, silks and other fabrics. Usually these antique quilt tops were pieced on a foundation fabric and it is not uncommon to find them unfinished. I have suggested to customers that they do not always need to back them, unless preferred, and sometimes just adding a binding is all that is needed especially if one enjoyes viewing the backing.
This is one of those quilts that we wonder what was her design pattern. So abstract and unique! There are 3 fabrics used in this quilt, the same pattern only using 3 different colorways. I feel this quilt maker was a " thinking out of the box" quilt maker. Did she/he have only this fabric left and wanted to make a unique design? It came from an estate in Illinois. The condition is excellent and has been washed once. The hand quilting is a nice 7-8 spi. The separate pink binding is stitched on by machine. True textile art.
