coming soon - epic pieced scrap quilt top from Oregon

 
Last week we were on a quilt selling spree. Nine quilts will soon be on their way to new homes. But we're always looking, and while browsing we found this gem and had to have it. 



It's a large crazy quilt top made of cotton fabrics from the 1930s to the 1950s. The top is foundation pieced on plain cotton muslin fabric and each patch is outlined with black decorative stitching. Dimensions are 89" x 75". Here are some photos.









Wow, what a stunner. It's coming from an estate in Pleasant Hill, Oregon, which is slightly southeast of Eugene. Can't wait to see it in person!

  1. you call it crazy.... I call it scrap because of the small pieces. Does the black embellishment make it crazy in your book?

    1. I would use "crazy" to describe the style of patchwork and "scrap" to describe the materials.

  3. Wow! I see blocks on the front in some sections. Yet in other areas, the backing seam lines are no where to be seen in the front. What a puzzle on how it was all assembled. Very cool!
