Crazy quilting results


Allison over at "She works with her hands in delight" has nearly completed a quilt top using our posted crazy quilt instructions. She found the project an excellent way to put her scraps to good use as well as encouraging of her vision for her home in the future.

See her detailed description of the project here.

Hi Kelly and Andrea!

Thank you so much for posting about my crazy quilt on your blog and Kelly, thank you for your comment under my post. :)

I cannot tell you how much I enjoyed making this quilt! Thank you so much for sharing very wonderful and simple directions. If I had more scraps, I would make another one. :)

Kelly, you had asked me how long it took me to make the top part...I think it took me two days, working on and off. I still have to finish sewing the hearts on though but I'm almost finished!! How are your quilts coming along? I can't wait to see what they look like!

Well, I didn't realize I was writing a novel of a comment. :) Again, thank you for sharing about your quilt making! Your blog is a great encouragement to me, and I really enjoy reading it! God bless. :)

Allison-
It is nice to meet you. I am glad this project was a blessing to you. You've done a marvelous job and are an inspiration to other stay-at-homers.

As far as our quilting progress goes, we have many in the works. I have been bouncing from quilt to quilt. I haven't enough random scraps to complete the crazy quilt. Most of my scrap are from garments we've sewn.

Every once in a while, when my errands take me near a fabric store, I stop in and buy the cotton remnants. Whatever is there I buy and this way I am sure to get completely random patterns and colors.

It will be interesting to see how it all comes out. But as you mentioned in your post, it seems strange to have one very odd block but once all the blocks are together the quilt looks very completed and balanced.

God Bless you in your homemaking endeavors!
Miss Kelly
