….are antique crazy quilts, that is – the orchestration of random shaped pieces of fabric in the hands of a quilting expert that became a cohesive ‘whole’ with both visual and tactile allure.
From Laura Fisher’s FISHER HERITAGE you have your choice among vibrant crazy quilts made of the traditional silks that are a hallmark of the Victorian era, and also splendid examples made of the less frequently seen wools and cottons. They are embellished with expertly sewn silk or wool threads embroidered as flowers, figures, and thousands of fancy stitches.
