How cool is this horizontal crazy quilt? It's an antique - I'm guessing 19th century - and I found it, in a gold-edged frame, on the wall at a local boutique. It appears to be made from silk, and while the some of those brown diamonds look a little stressed, the overall impact is extraordinary. Something about those cut off edges gives it a "modern" look, and the energy makes it irresistible.
