Modern crazy quilting is still an example of personal expression. It is far more contemporary and easy-to-master, by using modern tools and machines you are able to combine traditional methods with modern fabrics and fibers and create unique quilts that can be treasured.
Caring for an Antique Crazy Quilt
- Hang properly. Appliqué top and bottom casing pockets to the back of the piece. Insert a flat wooden dowel for hanging.
- Allow air to circulate freely. Avoid storing or displaying a crazy quilt behind glass to prevent accumulation of humidity. Also avoid direct sunlight as fabric is subject to fading.
- Never wash a crazy quilt. With outdated dyes and manufacturing methods, antique fabrics are especially vulnerable to bleeding and wear and tear. Treat your crazy quilt as a delicate piece of art.
