Crazy quilts are quintessential Victorian-era textiles that decorated beds, tables, settees, and even mantles. While the patterns of crazy quilts are meant to look random, as the name implies, the quilts are actually carefully pieced together artworks and time capsules that relate stories of the maker and her community. This exhibition will showcase the best of the Museum of Art’s crazy quilt collection. Each example boasts intricate patterns that combine luxurious fabrics with needlework skills of the highest caliber.
