This Crazy Quilt is constructed of random shapes organized in diamonds. These units come together in the center with that stabilizing scalloped medallion, giving an overall order to the quilt.
This beauty, made 135 years ago, is distinguished by its bright jewel tones, its strong center, the embroidered date, the lace edge, and the near-perfect condition.
