In American “vernacular”—or everyday—Crazy quilts, fine silks, velvets, brocades, lavish embellishment, and smallish size gave way to cotton and wool of the type used for work and durable clothing. They also feature spare or no embellishment, and strength and size improved enough to be used regularly as warm bedcovers. Far from sedate, this example features a vibrant saturated red contrasting with calmer blues, grays, and whites.
