Crazy 4 U


Yes, the date is accurate, from what I can tell. You are looking at one of the thirty-six 12×12″ squares that make up the crazy quilt that I just bought today. It isn’t even the best square.

It’s made mostly of wool, with a cotton back. No batting, as is the standard for crazy quilts. The embroidery is done in wool. It has some awkward repair patches in some places, some of which I will probably remove to expose the stitching beneath, even if the fabric has disintegrated.

This isn’t the greatest photo because I didn’t want to use a flash.

I was going to hang it using a sleeve and rod, but I’m beginning to reconsider that. I’m willing to hear recommendations.

Better photos coming soon!
