Gosh, am I excited!!!!!
The quilt that I got a peep at, at the Gippsland Heritage Park, is a crazyquilt, made wogga-fashion. That is, just roughly appliqued onto a previous bedspread. This is it after I got it out of the trunk and spread it out.
There is a HUGE picture HERE. It is very fragile, and the silk in it is all shredded. And the stitching is very ruimentary herringbone. But probably that is what excites me most, as this was a quilt that was made to be used, not just made to be ornamental.
And I will be back tomorrow with more details and pictures.
