A friend called me recently and said she had a crazy quilt she wanted me to see...I love calls like that they are such an adventure!
And this quilt did not disappoint!
It 's kind of an interesting version of a crazy quilt. Not a lot of velvet or silks. This quilt is mostly simple, solid cottons but the embroidery is very extensive.
And some of the patterns are unusual.
It was a real treat for the eyes.My friend bought it at a Flea Market in Illinois many years ago but she lent it to her sister 'til very recently.
Handwork takes on new meaning when studying a quilt like this!
I'm thinking it's probably from around 1900 +/- ?!
Happy over the hump day!
