I am a big fan of cotton Crazy Quilts, I think perhaps because they tend to lack surface embellishment, and so the structure of the piece right there to see.  

This one is composed of forty nine blocks, each seven inches square, and each an abstract composition of its own.  

Made "on foundation," it is essentially a quilt top, with no back or binding, but note that most quits made on foundation have no batting ... the foundation base pieces serve as the filling.   (See photos).
