This beautiful crazy quilt belongs to my new friend, Roxann. It is about 24-30" square (I didn't measure it) and was made by her greatgrandmother in the 1920s-30s. Katie Todd was born in 1852 and died in 1938. The backing and border was added by Roxann's mother in 1986.
I love the scalloped looking effect of the white on black in the middle-left area. Can't you just imagine where she might have salvaged all of these fabrics from? That pink might have been her daughter's best dress and the green her ball gown. The stripe looks like it could've been her walking dress.
