They were a unique style of quilt that broke dramatically from the structured patchwork quilts of the preceding years and were reflective of the period’s decorative art trends. A guided tour will examine the intricate features of these embellished quilts and consider how the crazy quilt aesthetic influenced fashion of subsequent eras.
