Antique Cotton Crazy Quilt - Wonderful Novelty Prints and Appliques

Time to kick up your heels ? Shoes and horseshoes. Such a fun combination of piecing and applique and novelty/conversation prints on this cotton crazy quilt from about 1885. New York State. Starley Quilt Collection.

Equestrian prints were especially popular - note the horse shoes above and below!

Another fun applique Miss Kitty and her lost mitten. And there's another horse print. Also a great hexagon star cheater print (faux patchwork).
