What does a crazy quilt look like?
A crazy quilt has blocks assembled from irregular and sometimes scrap pieces; there is no set pattern or design. Crazy quilt patterns were popular during the Victorian period when they were made with silks and velvets and heavily embellished with embroidery, beading, lace, and ribbons.
What does scrap quilt mean?
Scrap quilts are quilts that seem to be sewn with a random assortment of fabric – like the quilter put their hand in a bin of fabric and pulled out pieces without looking. Historically, many scrap quilts were “make do” projects and were pieced with leftover fabric and even clothing items.
