The ‘Crazy quilt’ skyrocketed to fame in the Victorian age and quickly became a national obsession. Tracing the Crazy’s rise in popularity through influences from the Civil War, the Centennial Exhibition, Japanese design, and periodicals like Godey’s Lady’s Book and Peterson’s Magazine, Brick uncovers the quirky history of this uncommon quilt style. In addition, she sheds light on the mysteries surrounding the Crazy, such as how it originated, how it got its name, and the meanings behind the flowers and fans embroidered into these lavish quilts. Also included are instructions on how to make your own Crazy quilt, featuring a variety of methods for hand or machine piecing that anyone can do. Beyond the basics of planning and constructing the quilt, the author gives expert advice on embroidering and embellishing the finished top using buttons, beads, or the antique embroidery motifs provided.
