Wow, this is so beautiful.  It looks exactly like antique crazy quilts that I have seen in museums.

Linakins - yes. This quilt is very heavy. I'm not sure exactly how much it weighs, but now I'm curious, so I'll have to check next time I take it down to switch out. Of course, there are several reasons for the weight.
1. Like most crazy quilts, it is foundation pieced to muslin, so there's automatically an extra layer of fabric in the quilt.
2. I backed this quilt in a nice thick wool herringbone.  It looks pretty, keeps the sun from coming trough the quilt, and is, of course, much heavier per yard than a standard quilting cotton would be.
3. The buttons, brads, and other findings on top of the quilt also add substantial weight to the quilt.
