CON HN1 Folk Art Crazy Quilt
approx. 45 x 65 (114.3 x 165.1 cm)
A fabulous piece of folk art in excellent condition! Both soft and vibrant, with an amazingly sophisticated feel, this crazy quilt has a wonderful mix of jewel toned silk velvets in mostly solid hues with a few velvet stripes, tone on tones, and cotton velvets added in. Central to the design is a Log Cabin block approximately 17 x 17 inches. Among the gorgeous mix of jewel toned velvet pieces in various shapes and sizes are 4 pieced fans rather abstract in feel. The smallest shape on this quilt measures just ¾ of an inch x ½ inch with the largest at 14 inches wide. This quilt is entirely hand pieced.
The backing is a wonderful glazed brown cotton with an applied 1 ¼ inch black velvet binding that shows some areas where the velvet has worn slightly. Although there is no batting between, the quilt has a nice weight due to the luxurious silk velvets.
This is a gorgeous folk art piece that is stunning when hung as art on the wall. The collector for whom we are selling this quilt added sleeves top and bottom for hanging in her home. This graphically wonderful Folk Art Crazy quilt can be shipped to you on approval for private viewing .
