Using scraps to make beautiful, 'crazy' designs
Almost everyone has a story about a quilt passed down to them. This crazy quilt on display at the Columbia Cultural Museum in Columbia, N.C., features intricate embroidery and an eclectic use of fabrics. Popular in the late 1800s and early 1900s, crazy quilts are resourceful and known for their abstract — or 'crazy' — designs. Helen Galligan, hostess at the museum, shares the story.
