Crazy Quilt

Available · 5 x 5 in. · $ 52

5” x 5” x 1.5”. Acrylic, textured paper, embroidery thread and fired copper on canvas.

Crazy quilting is the creation of quilts using irregularly shaped and textured fabrics together in harmonious but “crazy” or unordered patterns.

Crazy quilting was a hobby for upper-class women at one time. Eventually, however, the style fell out of fashion and was taken up by rural women who turned crazy quilting into a practical, sturdy art form.

Crazy quilting interests me especially in this form, where it could be used as a practical and beautiful way to reuse and memorialize worn-out clothes, blankets and other pieces of the past. As a multigenerational skill, crazy quilting expresses an organic, ancestral piecing-together that reinforces family bonds as well as new ideas. This piece uses paper collage and embroidery thread with fired copper to emulate in miniature some of the spirit of crazy quilts.
