Timeless Treasures: Crazy Quilts

Sunday, Mar 9 11:00a to 5:00p

Each January, the Museum starts the year with a selection of crazy quilts. The Crazy Quilting craze started around the 1880s when American quilters picked up needle and thread to create these highly embellished quilts. While some Crazies might include fans or other recognizable patterns, the style often features random sized patches sewn onto a foundation fabric. The edges of the patches are covered with embroidery stitches; often, the patches may include paintings, ink work, or embroidery.
