    Please note that the site linked to, the blog on which you see this quilt, is NOT the site of the maker of this amazing quilt.

    The blog's author has taken photos of the crazy quilt without the maker's permission (she admits this herself), and posts them "for the pleasure and instruction of other crazy quilters."

    Personally I find this brazen and presumptuous and would be quite upset if it were MY quilt she was "highjacking", despite the fact that I also enjoyed seeing this crazy quilt up close and personal.

    That said, the work of the quilt maker is truly spectacular and worthy of the finest examples of the original crazy quilts of 100 years ago. It is stunning! I'd adore to see it in real time.

    That crazy quilt is just amazing and even more so when you realize it was all hand done, no machine work at all.
