Stabilizing fringes on a crazy quilt

Crazy quilt

Collection of Shelburne Museum

2009-13

 

This crazy quilt is truly a mixed media extravaganza, with many of the pieces being commemorative ribbons with metal thread fringes. The volunteers are threading the ends of the fringes with silk thread to minimize the amount of handling the fringes will require as the quilt moves from storage to exhibition and back.
