    Cool Mel's 1st Crazy Quilt

    I was ask to make this quilt for a Friend for her Grand daughter that was born in December of 2012.
    It is a quilt as you go. I think I will be making more of these. Good way to use up some of my stash.

    Very sweet.
    When it seems like the world is falling to pieces remember that the pieces are falling into place. We are nearing closer to the End Times.

    Your quilt is beautiful. I haven't tried a QAYG yet but it sounds very interesting.

    It's beautiful! It's a very unique scrappy. Is there a pattern?

    Thank You,
    No, I didn't have a pattern. I saw a video of someone sewing strips together on 45 angle. Then she started just going around the main center piece. It was fun and I used up some scraps. Most of my strips were cut at 2" strips. I quilted it as I went along, it is so much easier. I wasn't satisfied with the way the back of the sq. looked, so I went over the seams with decorative stitches. Ready to start more squares...
