Learn How to Make a Crazy Quilt

Learn how to make a crazy quilt, a type of quilt that became popular during the late 1800s. To make a crazy quilt, quilters sew pieces of fabric onto an unmarked permanent foundation. Fancy stitching and embellishments are commonly used between patches. Velvets, satins and other lush fabrics are favorites, but crazy quilts can be made from any fabric you choose.
