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."
Flag #8 wall quilt
This is my eighth American Flag quilt. It is a smaller version of my original design. It uses the same stylized star pattern, suggestive of 13 stars, but changes out the piecing of the stripes to the time-honored rail fence design. It measures 26" h x 40"w. This wall quilt is included in an Etsy treasury entitled "Patriot Day 9/11 Remembrance": http://www.etsy.com/treasury/MjA2MzU1ODl8MjcyMzI4NTg3NA/patriot-day-911-rememberance?ref=af_shop_tre
