   Silk and Silk Velvet Victorian Crazy Quilt with Dresden Plate Center


What a truly spectacular example of Victorian Crazy Quilt! This quilt certainly has it all; beautiful silks and silk velvets outlined with a multitude of Victorian Crazy quilt stitches, with a variety of gorgeous embellishments including raised embroidery, crewel and oil paintings. There are numerous flowers, butterflies, owls, fruits, grapes, a girl with a bonnet, sheaves of wheat, the elaborate initial ‘S´ presumably for the maker, and more. A large floral spray is hand painted on wine colored silk, while another piece is executed with raised embroidery using silk chenille. The inclusion of the Dresden Plate block in the middle surrounded by four corner fans creates a center medallion focus, giving the whole quilt a unique visual balance. The beautiful russet silk velvet border has been pillowcase edged. To a lovely, sophisticated russet and green paisley floral cotton backing.The entire quilt was then reverse tied. A stunning piece of Victorian textile art meant to display the maker´s artistic and embroidery accomplishments. A perfect quilt for display as art on your wall becoming the focal point of any room. You may see this quilt on approval for viewing in the privacy of your home.
