For sale is this LOVELY Crazy quilt circa 1890. This is a lovely folky wool and printed fabric Crazy, harking to the days when there was a switch from the strictly ornamental silks and satins of the 1880s to the more useful full size warmer quilts for your bed. This is all hand pieced and sewn with a wonderful variety of decorative stitches and designs in wool yard.
The quilt is in very good/good+ condition, with a few small holes on the wool edging, some decorative threads that have come loose, and one piece of fabric with one small area of fraying. There is no fading (and spots in the photos are just from the sun glare). This is backed in white muslin but the decorative stitches are sewn threw, which is kind of cool as it shows the work. It measures 75" x 76" and is shown on a full size bed.
