Old silk crazy quilt queen size needs backing
|| for item safn-3542
This was in a cedar chest at an estate, and had been packed away since 1953. Made of old silk scraps, and mostly emroidered with a feather stitch on the seams. Probably 1/4 needs to be embroidered. Pins are still in it, and old newspaper that it had been folded on to keep it neat. Cotton batting is pinned and basted on. Shown in photo it is on a queen size bed with ample hangover on the sides. No holes or rips, as it was never completed, just put away.
