    I love crazy quilting. My students and I did blocks then traded. I made a throw with mine.
    Your work is beautiful.

    I took a class on it back in the fall. I could not believe how many things you do with various things like beads, silk ribbon and embroidery floss. It is amazing all the designs you can make with embroidery stitches. I haven't finished mine yet, but the the teacher was excellent.

    Your work is beautiful! I've made a lap quilt and a few Christmas stockings. I started making a sweatshirt jacket... haven't finished it.
    I love to do crazy quilting, but seems to always be something else taking plans in my head that will go faster.

    I have never done that but I'd love to. I'm not sure where to start. Or what to start with. Maybe the LQS will offer some class, that would be fun. I have mys sister saving men's ties for me that she gets in to their church thrift shop. They can't use all that they receive and I'm going to make a quilt of some kind with them. Your work is so nice. I love the stocking. Did you just make up the pattern?

    Love to crazy quilt. I took a class many years ago that made a Christmas tree skirt and have used this method on several small projects since. I goes fairly quickly once you get the hang of it

    My very first quilt was a crazy quilt made of velvet scraps when I was 11 years old and I still make crazy patch things.

    I'm a CQer. I'm just piecing 3 Christmas socks now and I'll be taking these with me when we go south for the winter. I find these are big projects and I'm anxious to get them done, and then I'd like to do some small projects. I love the ones you have displayed.

    I am collecting fabrics for two crazy quilts for my daughters. But so far, I have not tried the technique.

    I love your work!

    You seem to gather a lot of things in crazy quilting. I love the stack together plastic boxes that are clear. easy to carry and see what you want to start with. I have only been crazy quilting for about 4 years. We have a club within our guild. It consists of about 20 girls. We meet once a month at someones house. We learn from each other. The hearts were taught by one of our members and I liked to so much I made 32 of them for Christmas Presents. Not a lot of expense just my time in front of the TV each evening.
    The stocking was another pattern we sheared. Some made them white and some made them wool and some from drapery scraps. All were gorgeous. They will be displayed at our Quilt show on June 5 in Boiling Springs Pa. at the school.

    These are beautiful - I love the heart. Crazy is one of my evening handwork projects too - I've only done two blocks so far and have no idea what it will end up as but I love all the ribbons, embroidery and little doodads you can include! Plus, it widens out the shopping obsession from fabric and tools! I scrounged around the house for stuff as well - buttons, beads from a broken bracelet of my daughter's, odd earings, one of DH's silk ties (I asked him first!). I also am using some non cottons, my little girl's outgrown velvet dress, some organza type stuff etc. Anything like that, I iron on to interfacing to stabilise it.

    Do you piece your blocks by hand or machine? I did a couple a while ago which are 9" squares hand pieced onto a muslin foundation but found them too big to work on comfortably so they are now pinned up in my sewing room - maybe I'll make them into cushions or something. My new project is with 6" squares and I machine pieced them, no foundation. It's fun isn't it? I must pick mine up again, haven't done any since Christmas becasue I'm trying to finish a hand quilting project. Maybe I'll do some this evening! :-D
