Loose, as a craftsman who has done many shows where true handcrafted quilts are displayed, I can assure you the quality of some are outstanding. It's not uncommon to see them selling for well over $1,500.
I have a "popcorn" quilt made by my grandmother for my parent's wedding in 1936. It was crocheted and I had it appraised for insurance purposes, and they valued it at $10,000.

As you might guess I prefer crazy quilts and have several from the 50's I obtained while serving time in a Mid-West Land Grant University. Those and a Hoosier are the only things of value from that time.

I'm in the process of building a Hoosier for our craft show display.

Most of my furniture is from that time Hard rock maple from Vermont. Much prettier than oak. My quilts are wearing out but I plan to teach the art to my granddaughter this summer.
