    Do you mean are we crazy or do we make crazy quilts? Some would think we are crazy for cutting up fabric into little pieces just to sew them back together again.

    LOL I was going to add "or just crazy"!! LOL

    I really enjoy doing crazy quilting. I have done just a little of it though. I just recently joined a group in my home town that meets once a month and we are going to be doing a round robin. I have never done one before and I am really excited about it.

    Each woman make her own block 12 1/2" Square with a 2" muslin border and embroiders the center. Then it goes to each person to work on. Each woman will get her own block back with other women's work on her block. I think that is just so neat. We start next month bringing in our blocks. I can't wait!!

    lol that was my ?? too. After all - look at my username.

    I may be mad, but sorry not crazy (quilty-speaking).

    Tried to put together a crazy patch with cotton fabrics, and I don't know if the colors were too bright, or what - but it just didn't work out.

    Well, I don't know if I would call myself a crazy quilter or not since I have not actually made a crazy quilt yet, but I have put 4 blocks together. Still have alot more to go, then all the embellishments that goes with it. That is the scary part for me, and the most important part. To me, at least when I look at other's quilts, that is what really makes the quilts so beautiful. I just don't have all the stitches mastered yet, but working on them. Now, just if I'm crazy or not, the gkids think I act like that sometimes, but that's how I entertain the little buggers.(They are all under the age of 4)LOL

    I haven't done a complete crazy quilt but have done some pillow covers and decided, at least for me, that the success may be in the prints, bold and soft, and the use of color value. In other words don't put too much of the same thing together.

    Well, I quilt and people tell me I'm crazy... does that count? Actually, I've done a few small crazy quilt style projects, but it isn't my first love.

    I am planning to make a crazy quilt, using the scraps from PJ's that I made my sisters family the last two years.
