Soft Pastel Embroidered Antique Silk Crazy Quilt

Very sweet indeed! This hand pieced and hand embroidered crazy quilt is a beauty with a wonderful soft pastel and neutral palette and floral charm. This quilt dates from the early 20th century with a great variety and assortment of silk and sateen fabrics typical of the day. The colorful prints, including charming florals, woven stripes, dotted swiss and solids some with texture and some smooth fabrics are used to make the blocks, and they are embellished with embroidery including feather stitching
Hand pieced and skillfully hand embroidered, no batting, backed with natural ecru silk or sateen (varies according to each block. Bound edging is finished with blanket stitch.
Measures 90" x 90".
Found at an estate sale, it has been well stored, but as is so often the case with these fragile silk quilts, a few of the fabrics have begun to disintegrate due to the dyes used to make them, But most of the pieces are intact, and it's still so beautiful to just simply display as is.
Very cottage chic romantic look.
