Early American Velvet "Crazy Quilt" - 76" x 76" in Size
This wonderful crazy quilt, circa 1900, consists of various size pieces of mostly velvet materials, with some satins, expertly fitted together. The colors are a panorama of medium and dark shades, all decorated on the edges with a straight-line stitching design which resembles sprigs of foliage in various colors of the rainbow. There is even some needle-work and applique decoration. The backing is a cotton print of delicate pink and yellow rosebuds against a black background. The pieced front is tacked to the backing by yarn ties that show on the reverse as well as being carefully bound on all sides. The size is 76" X 76" and will comfortably cover a double-size bed. Would be a fabulous wall-hanging or decorative throw. I feel it was used very little, if at all. I can find no rips, holes, worn spots or repairs.
