    Batik Crazy Patch

    Amy's Batik Crazy Patch

    I have spent a great deal of the past year working on this quilt for my daughter. This is one of her favorite quilts. It is approximately 100 square, for her queen sized bed, with 25 14 inch squares, a crazy patch border and a crazy patch binding. I think it is lovely, but she hasn't seen the finished project. I also made matching pillow shams. I got most of these batiks at the Connecting Threads warehouse sale here in Columbus. This is only my 5th or 6th quilt, plus a few table runners and table cloths. Hope she likes it.

    I did go back and embroider the seams of all of the patches. I learned a lot about my sewing machine doing these. Lots of thread changes on this quilt.

    I used adding machine tape to make this crazy patch inner border with scraps left over from the squares.

    Thanks for looking, hope you enjoy the pictures

    Charlotte



    I got carried away and even made a crazy patch binding. But I love the look of it.

    That is so pretty. I love the fact you did the embroidery. Makes it even more special.
    Have a great day sewing and remember to "not sweat the small stuff"!!

    I have been trying to make my own template for a 5 sided center for something like this where all the centers are the same shape. Yours turned out nice.

    Your quilt is exquisite! I love the embroidery, it makes me think of many "antique" quilts I've seen. You have inspired me to try it!
    I know your daughter will love it!
