Example text

It is clear that Crazy-style patchwork, while not desirable to the reporter, was also not unfamiliar to her. Since newspapers, letters, and other papers were generally used only as a background foundation for cotton fabrics, it is probable that the quilt that Brayton ridiculed is yet another form of the cotton Crazy that earlier quilters pieced without a fabric foundation. Piecing on a paper foundation was not an unknown method for quilting, and the results were certainly more stable than a quilt pieced with no foundation at all.

For thousands of years, only those well-off could afford to buy fabric ready-made; others wove their own fabric or went without. It would make no sense for someone to go to the trouble of weaving yardage, then cut it up for no other reason than decoration. It would make sense, though, to patch—and continue patching—an item of clothing to keep it in gainful use. Eventually, multipatched clothing and bedcoverings would come to resemble Crazy patchwork. These pieces would probably be mostly wool. Although linen was probably used as well, it would have most likely been reserved for larger patches.

As you turn the pages of this “common sense” history of Crazy quilts, you will meet quilters who broke all the rules of quilting. They invented a form of abstract art a generation before the painters who became famous for it. If you have been in love with Crazy quilts for years or decades, you will see them anew as Cindy explores the development of the form over time. You’ll find something new in every quilt—look closely. As a quilter, you will find techniques to adapt in your quilts today. As a collector, you’ll see great examples of the breadth and depth of the field.
