Cotton Crazy Quilt with Copious Embroidery

This quilt is made of cotton fabrics, some 19thc, including black on red prints, chintz, checks and bandana prints. It was found in Indiana, made no later than 1910. It is constructed of blocks with a red fabric in the center of each block, and that plus limiting the colors to red, black, blue and tan unifies the whole piece. The embroidery done with cotton threads is excellent but as can be seen in the last photo the maker apparently ran out of the heavier thread and stitched three blocks with ordinary thread. The backing is flannel; front and back are tied together and the batting is thick. Measurements are 78 by 70 inches.
