This Magnificent Quilt is in very, very Good Condition.Crazy quilts became popular in the late 1800s, likely due to the English embroidery and Japanese art that was displayed at the Philadelphia Centennial Exposition. American audiences were drawn to the satin stitches used in English embroidery, which created a painterly surface, which is reflected in many Crazy Quilts. The displays shown at the Japanese pavilion of silk-screened work and Japanese pottery with a cracked-glaze inspired the American audiences.
Similar aesthetics began to show up in Crazy Quilts, including unique patterns. Crazy quilting rapidly became a national fashion amongst urban, upper-class women. Who used the wide variety of fabrics that the newly industrialized 19th century textile industry offered to piece together single quilts from hundreds of different fabrics.
Crazy quilts differ from "regular" quilts in other ways as well. Because the careful geometric design of a quilt block is much less important in crazy quilts, the quilters are able to employ much smaller and more irregularly shaped pieces of fabric. In comparison to standard quilts, crazy quilts are far more likely to use exotic pieces of fabric. Such as velvet, satin, tulle, or silk. And embellishments such as buttons, lace, ribbons, beads, or embroidery.
Crazy quilting as a textile art is extremely creative and free-flowing by natureCrazy quilts are extremely labor-intensive. A Harper's Bazaar article from 1884 estimated that a full-size crazy quilt could take 1,500 hours to complete! Please View All Photos and if there is any questions or information do not.
