    Finally finished the crazy quilt!

    I could swear there was a section for crazy quilts somewhere, but I can't seem to find it.

    Anyway, after 2 years, she's done! And she came out much better than I thought she would. It looks SO much better in person than it does in this pic, but here goes anyways. Ya'll have no idea how excited I am to have finished! lol. Her name is "The Wishful Garden".
    I hemmed and hawwed about showing it, but I know everyone here won't be too hard on me. . .I hope?

    Oh, and ever single thing used for/on this quilt (except my sewing machine) came from clearance/yard/garage sales. I'm as proud of that as anything.
    She'll be headed to the fair this fall - wish me luck, please!

    I have a husband and kids, therefore, I need therapy and sewing is way cheaper than a psychiatrist.

    Wow, that is one splendiferous quilt, each center is unique and wonderful - it's sure to be a prize-winner!

    Nicely Done. Good Luck at the Fair. Just know it is a quilt you will love and cherish no matter what the judges may say. I find that the hardest part. The judges and I don't always agree! Ah well it is a beautiful quilt Enjoy it. Luann in CT

    It's awesome! Wish the photo was a bit clearer and we could zoom in on the squares to see better, but from what I CAN see, it's awesome. I though it would be "just another crazy quilt pattern", but I love the way you made each square into something to look at! I'm impressed!

    I think you did a wonderful job. I love the white borders and the way you added the (I think) flowers. Very nice. I hope you win.
