My great-grandmother’s crazy quilts where almost as fantastic as this one. The photo was provided by Barbara Brackman,  the material girl. She is a quilt historian, author of over a dozen books on quilting and a fabric designer.

Quilt making was a family artform and I’ve inherited a few. My favorite is the crazy quilt. It’s the surreal foreground in the painting Awakenings.
