things I love – crazy quilts
a week or so ago, Cristy and I attended a musical performance at the House of Blues in Houston and I noticed the intriguing curtain panel at the front of the stage assembled crazy quilt style.
While all forms of quilting art touch my heart, the freeform design of crazy quilts reminds me of antique scrolls, thick tapestries, and storytellers of old.
I love the layers of fabric, beads and buttons on this example from Sharon at Pin Tangle (click on image to redirect to the source)
The quilts hold a secret story in their layers. As in this beautiful example from Kimberly Sherrod at Calamity Kim
or this example, via Pigtales and Quilts.
As with all artistry, I appreciate the beauty revealed in unexpected variances that can only be found in a handmade piece.
