Detail of a crazy quilt dated 1901
Collection of the Sharlot Hall Museum in Arizona
The white cat and pink squirrel catch your eye but there's
also a representation of a Grand Army of the Republic badge.
Grand Army of the Republic Badge
And a lot of stars....
Was it a G.A.R. quilt?
Also: symbols often seen on crazy quilts like cranes and shoes
And bulldogs, but a lot of stars.
The Arizona Quilt Project recorded this star-spangled quilt.
And they own the quilt.
Hmmm, interesting things to add to my Crazy Quilt, once i get it started. Thanks.
