Sensational Velvet Crazy Quilt

This sensational c. 1900 velvet crazy quilt came from an eBay seller in Hartsdale, New York. Enthralled with velvet lately, I had to have it.

The quilt is approximately 54" x 84" and is made with crazy patch blocks pieced on cloth foundation, set on point and surronded by a crazy pieced border on all four sides. Colorful embroidery outlines each patch and the binding is most intriguing. It is pieced from velvets in a variety of colors. What a great find!
