CONCLK3 Wool Crazy Quilt
c. 1890
32 x 43 inches
New England

Wool crazy quilts were made to be used, unlike silk crazy quilts that were made a for artistic embellishment. Here we have a woolen Crazy quilt that was made as a lap quilt. This diminutive quilt is comprised of 12 10-1/2" blocks that are wool, wool challis and some cotton flannel. The backing is a cotton flannel making this a very cozy lap quilt. It had previously been hung on a wall so pockets are sewn on and it’s ready to hang. Most of the fabrics are from the 1880s, but since there are also fabrics dating 1890, we need to date it c.1890. Ready to be sent for your viewing and approval.
