New 9-Patch Crazy Quilt for 2018
I did a temporary lay-out of the blocks. The blocks will be butted together. I have a Scalamandre damask in gold and in crimson drapery panel, and one of those will be used for the backing. Scalamandre is known for their reproduction fabrics and wall coverings loomed for the White House. I was able to purchase some of those remnants when they closed the Queens manufacturing operation. The edging will be a one-inch wide velvet. Can't wait to get to the assembly.
The quilt will hang in the front stairwell, where it will not suffer daylight exposure.
