Crazy Quilt 1
The description card reads, "Crazy Quilt 1883-1893 Silk, cotton, wool, and linen, pieced and embroidered with silk and cotton threads Crazy quilts, which emerged after 1850, were usually composed of small, irregular-shaped fragments of silk, wool, and other fragments pieced together. The seams were then embroidered using a variety of stitches. They acquired the name “crazy quilts” because of the strong colors and busy, confusing nature of their designs, typical of Victorian taste."

Crazy Quilt 2
I am so impressed by the embroidery on this quilt. Someone put in a printed piece (the one in the center here), entitled "Love's Blessing." It's cool how much creativity they had before TV rotted people's brains, and the time to carry out their vision, too!
