    Today I brought in my quilt top to show my co-workers and boss that I'm making for my DGD (who is due any day now).

    He looked at it and asked me if all those little squares had to be sewn together... I told him yes they did.

    His reply ... "Just another sign you're crazy" and walked out of my office.

    I cracked up.

    How about you...have you been told you're crazy?

    we're not crazy, just creative! The fabric wasn't right when it was all one piece of "the same" ~ we improved it by putting it back together "right" haa haa LOL

    I don't call that crazy, I call it creative. Yes I have been told many times I'm crazy. I am working on a quilt that is about to drive me crazy :-)!!

    Husband said that too. He can't understand why someone would want to cut up fabric and sew it back together again. He says, "Why not just buy the patterned blanket you want to begin with?" He hasn't got a clue.

    Countless times! But, at least I'm in good company. I think all quilters must be a tad be off the wall! If we aren't when we start, we soon will be! LOL!

    All the time! You know, when you live in the South, we don't hide our "crazy" family members. We bring them out for everyone to see. :lol: :lol: :lol:

    I had an ex-BF that said he could not understand why someone would go out and buy perfectly good material, cut it up into little pieces, then turn around and sew it back together again. He just didn't understand. If that makes me crazy, then so be it.

    Did you tell your boss this is what keeps you from going crazy?? *LOL* it's our therapy!! My Mom used to tell me "I was just as happy as if I had good sense" Maybe that was a nice way of saying I was crazy?? Linda B.

    That's pretty much what my dad said when I showed him a design I was working on. "Do you have to sew all those little squares together?" He might have thought I was crazy but he didn't say it. Guess that's because he's my dad. LOL

    Oh yes. I made a miniature quilt for a swap. It was 12"x12" and had over 600 pieces. When she took it to her quilt group to show one woman told her I must be insane, LOL!

    Perhaps he is just a tad jealous that you can and did do it.
