You Never Know Where You Might Find A Crazy Quilt

The last time I picked my daughter
up from the airport, I was
surprised by what I saw.
This time I brought
a camera in hopes of seeing it
again.
It was late in the evening
and no one was around,
so I took lots of photos.
Oh to be 12 feet tall,
instead of 5'2"......
I could have gotten closeups of
all of it. 
 Next time, maybe
I can sneak in a ladder.
Wonder what the TSA
regulations are, on that???
At the end of a long hallway
 was this....

The following photos are closeups,
I thought the details were fascinating.






I have many more photos to add.
But, blogger thinks this is
enough for today.
I hope you find these photos
interesting and maybe
find a seam treatment you
would like to try.
Love to all,
Deb

Wow! I love it Deb and I can just see you trying to get it all - how funny, but how understandable!
I love these kinds of crazy quilts; such a riot of colour and texture and embellishment. I have one I started years ago in a real mix of colours and now I am itching to drag it out again and do some more...

I am drooling over that quilt! So many details to look at. Thank you for sharing the larger image and the closeups. There are so many interesting icons. I love how the umbrella and ladies boot are incorporated into their blocks. Love it all!

Oh wow - what a treasure!! It's amazing that it would be on display in the airport - was there anything on it to give more of the history? I enjoyed the seam treatments and the boot and THEN I saw those strawberries!! They look good enough to eat.

This quilt is such a treasure of stitches past. I wonder what the timeline of this quilt might be. It is very vintage. I can just imagine the ladies sitting in the parlor stitching on their CQ blocks...in very dim lighting. Just beautiful...Thank you for sharing this.
