QT820 Foundation Pieced Crazy Quilt Top

c. 1935
76 x 78 inches
New England

This cotton crazy quilt was created from 5-1/2” strips running the full length of this crazy quilt. These strips were then stitched together. It displays an unbelievable array of fabrics in every imaginable color and pattern. There are feed sacks, regular fabrics, dress prints, cotton curtain fabrics, and conversation prints all dating from 1915 to 1935. All of these fabrics appear to be unused condition and have created a wonderfully happy cotton crazy quilt. This piece is truly a scrap bag quilt....well almost a quilt...now it needs a cotton bat and a backing. Because it is foundation pieced, one can easily finish it by using the tying method verses hand or machine quilting. As always, this can be sent on approval.
