    This is my crazy quilt that won't be done for several years. I have 12 blocks total to do and I am in no rush.

    If you have been watching my posts can you tell I am procrastinating cleaning and would rather stay here and play with all of you? LOL :roll:

    Mary, these are lovely. :D
    Did you go to the Ft.Worth Quilt Show? And did you happen to take pictures that you can share with us? I missed the show.

    I believe that is true that is does not get filling but I am so far away from that. It is just something fun to work on while we watch TV.

    I did not make it to the Ft Worth show. Hopefully the one in Dallas.

    i love it!! Nice job - what are the different types of fabrics you are using?
    What amazing hand stitching - that is really a lost art - very nice!

    Wow-where do you find all those fabrics? That is a lot of handwork too-I love the beading details you have added.

    It looks like one we'd find in an antique store--very unique--very special. It looks like a blast to put together.

    that is beautiful I wish I knew how to crazy quilt I love them but whenever I try to make a crazy block it just ends up looking like a mess but I'm optimistic because I have a tote full of satins velvets and ribbon for the time I finally get it right Sandie from IN.

    Want some pointers? I certainly don't pretend to know it all but I know enough to get you into trouble. LOL

    Thank you everyone for your kind comments.
