Very attractive throw, nice weight and soft to the touch. Great to cuddle up under. The jewel tones of the patches give it a rich look. Hand-crafted style unique embroidery add to the charm. The velvet border is midnight navy, not black like it looks in the picture and is hand quilted, so dry-cleaning is recommended.

I love my Antebellum Crazy Quilt- I keep it on my easy chair in front of the TV and often snuggle under it and fall asleep. It is velvety soft and snuggly and nice and warm in the winter, but I also snuggle under it in the Summer as well when there is air conditioning.I have always been a fan of the classical Civil War era crazy quilt made from scraps of fine fabric with embroidery, but they are hard to make and difficult to find already made. People who have one don't let them go. It is a beautiful replica that has an authentic look. It feels elegant to snuggle under it.

I took a chance on this Crazy Quilt, because I had priced the antique originals and they were too expensive. They were also so old they were not machine washable. What the company did not reveal in their ad about this quilt was that the backing is a thick cotton fabric in a maroon/brown color. The backing fabric is a tight weave that does not attract pet hair! They also do not tell you to disregard the smell when you open the packing, and immediately wash it on a medium setting, and dry it on medium also, with a fabric softener. They also do not tell you that some of the patches are satin brocade, and not just velveteen alone. I like that. It makes the quilt look more like the real thing. One of the reviews complained that the embroidery was very sparse. Not so with the one I ordered. I was resigned to do some additional embroidery of my own when it arrived, but that was completely unnecessary. The embroidery was excellent and generously distributed all over the quilt. I put
