    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!

    That is absolutely lovely. I'm going to forward the link to my batik-crazy-but-scrappy-loathing friend to show her how cool crazy quilt "scrappies" can be.

    Wonderful crazy quilt. I bet it was a lot of fun picking out the different fancy stitches to use and good for you learning so much about your machine by using them.

    I never thought of using batiks for a crazy quilt. It is beautiful.

    Lovely work. I like the way you have used black around each block - it frames each one beautifully.

    I've never been much of a fan of crazy quilts, but yours looks so fresh and modern and you've picked some great color combinations - I love it!
    A fabric stash is always missing that one fabric needed to finish the quilt on which you're working.

    I love every bit of your quilt. I have heard of using adding machine tape for scrappy borders. It looks so great on yours. Scrappy binding too - wow! You have one lucky daughter.
