Better Crazy Quilts


In the last post I showed the kind of quilt that has given crazy quilts a bad name amongst certain quilt afficianados.


Here are some crazy quilts from online auctions that are, shall we say, "More interesting visually." Compostition counts.



Crazy or on the edge.

I love crazy quilts and never thought of them as being perfect, that is the charm. Most people made them from old clothes and used scraps, so that is what made them crazy quilts. My grandmother used to make them from my grandfather's old wool pants, wish I had one of them.

Are there any circumstances under which sewn pieces of fabric are just that or do we have a quilt classification for everything? Also are crazy quilts a classification ie are they in a juried group at shows and if so, what on earth is being evaluated?
Thanks and love your blog
