Airport Crazy Quilt part 3


When I first saw this quilt
I remember thinking,
"That is the kind of
Crazy Quilt, I fell
in love with."
The simplicity
of simple seam treatments
and well placed motifs.






The above is my favorite!



That's all folks!

Love to all,
Deb

Isn't it gorgeous. There are probably bits of fabrics from scraps of clothes made or worn too. These old time quilts are, in my opinion works of art and useful, unlike the more sophisticated works with silk ribbons etc, that can't be washed.

Amazing Deb! That artist's palette is going on one of my blocks! The flowers are wonderful and I love some of these seam treatments. Oh to know the history behind it all! Thank you so much!

An artist palette - wow! I especially like the ribbon flowers and so nice to know that the makers name and date was included on the quilt. So many of the old ones don't have that and it's such a shame.
