I was cleaning today and came across Grandma's Crazy Patch quilt which she made about 50 years ago. The blocks are 14" and all made with silk scraps. I imagine Grandma was given a box of scraps from someone. I know she wouldn't have gone out and bought them. To me, this is what crazy patch is all about. I wish she was still here to know that I finally got the quilting bug, too. That's her old treadle machine in my avatar.
(Sorry, it's a bit wrinkled but I'm afraid to iron it.)
