    I am in a crazy quilting group in my home town. Right now we are doing a round robin where each person participating puts their own fabric on a block and then it goes to each woman to do stitching on. This is my first RR and it is so much fun. I just finished the 3 block and took picture of it. I thought I did of the second one I worked on and I forgot to of the first but will get those at the next meeting. I wanted to share this picture. I did the vine with flowers and a spider web and spider. My husband named him Spurious!! :-D

    love that spider! I too am working on a crazy quilt, but all by myself. The idea of doing one as a round robing is cool as I run out of ideas and have been ordering books and the like for inspiration.

    Thank you everyone. When I posted the picture I thought how real he looked too. I made him with beads. He was supposed to be kind of long but I couldn't get the beading to look right so I undid it. I started at the bottom part, made a circle with a chalk pen, put one bead in the center and then started circling beads around it until I got the size I wanted. For the front or chest part is three rows of three beads. The rest is black floss. This was so fun to make. I got the design out of Carole Samples book: "Treasury of Crazy Quilt Stitches.

    Hi PaperPrincess, I live in Howell west of Brighton. I live a ways from the thumb probably between 1-2 hours depending on where you live. I would love to meet up with you sometime though--perhaps when it gets warmer.

    Hi scrappycats, This is my first RR and it is being so much fun. I think you would enjoy it. Do you have ladies near you that you can meet and sew with? One book that I treasure for ideas is where I got this particular design from: Treasury of Crazy Quilt Stitches by Carole Samples. She is very knowledgeable and inspiring. You might be able to find a used one but new it is about $27 but very worth it.
