Crazy Quilt

Unidentified Quilt Maker
Circa 1940
60 x 70 inches
Origin Unknown; Found in Missouri

I love the quilts that are the maker's fully personal vision.  This one-of-a-kind textile falls into the "Variations on a Theme" category.  Each block is an abstraction built around a center circle, and unique.  And each block is a fine composition in itself.

The composition nods to the traditional Log Cabin, with sort-of strips building out from the center.  But that very center, a circle, renders it a different animal.

In Excellent Condition, it is composed primarily of silks and rayons.  It is a tied piece; all of the decorative embroidery is by hand. The smallish size serves it well for hanging on the wall ~ a mid-20th century treasure.
