My cousin sent a note to me the other day asking what I could tell her about her quilt. Well I know little about wool crazy quilts except that I like them but offered to her that I’d write about it on the blog and see if one of you might be able to give Deb some advice.
Deb writes, “So if you had this quilt top would you finish it or leave it. Mom got it at a garage sale back in the 50’s or 60’s for 2.00. She didn’t have the extra 2.00 to get the finished one. She gave it to me years ago and it is such a waste to keep it in the cedar chest and not enjoy it. All those designs are embroidered.”
Wow. Isn’t it amazing?!
The workmanship is wonderful and I agree with my cousin Deb. It is a shame for it to be locked away in a cedar chest. But should she finish it and if so, how?
Obviously machine quilting isn’t the option. Does it get tied? Does it get hand quilted and tied where does she put the ties?
I know little to nothing about wool quilts so I really wasn’t any help to her. I am hoping one of you might be a help.
It’s such a wonderful beauty and the workmanship is admirable. If she does something with it. She wants to do it right.
So come on blog readers…advice please.
