More Antique Crazy Quilts

I was looking through some of my EBay Antique Crazy Quilt pictures that I had saved over the years and thought I would post some more of them. I am especially attracted to the artistic graphic nature or beautiful stitching on these.

These panels were probably going to be a border or they could have been part of a row quilt. They could have also been turned into a tile quilt. I want to make a tile quilt someday.

Here is a close up of one of the fans. It looked to be quite dimensional.

I love the use of the border on this. I only have this one picture. It looks like it has some great stitching and motifs. I would love to see it close up. Very nice!

This unfinished CQ is interesting in it's randomness. I like all the fans. What would it have ended up like?

So many CQ's ended up being unfinished. I love the center medallion. What would the border have been like? Like the center? I only have this one picture. This has a folk art feel to it.

This picture is not really that great but the quilt has a very interesting design.


I have many more pictures and will post some more later.
It is a rainy, dreary day here in Southern California. Either a good Saturday to go up to my sewing room or go to the grocery store and come home and cook some nice warm soup. Maybe do both!

I totally love that CQ with the circular pieced middle!! and the panels are very clever too--I have some embroidery motifs that would work with that idea!
Thanks so much.

I love these photos! I always love it when you post the links for the Ebay quilts (have I told you that lately? I think not), so this is even better; the best of the best. Please keep them coming....and I'll love a bowl of that soup....
