    Stained Glass Crazy Top Done

    My latest finished top, a stained glass crazy quilt. It is paper pieced and measures 65 x 75. I bought the block pattern online last year but don't remember where. The border I just drew myself on graph paper.
    The last pic is a humbug bag I made for my DGD out of two leftover blocks.

    Pretty quilt and humbug bag! I've always wondered why they named them "humbug" bags? Is it because you could store candy humbugs in them? So you remember the name? Or because you're having a bad grouchy Christmas? And why do I always wonder "why" about things?

    Beautiful quilt! It's on my bucket list. I made Humbug bags for each of my grandkids instead of Christmas stockings one year. It is amazing how much stuff you can fill them with and they have a handy little bag to take home with them.

    beautiful, very striking...I notice that every block is the same and you did not rotate them, which I think may be way it does not seem as busy as some scrap quilts. Nice job

    Whoa...that quilt is beautiful. You did a lot of work,and it sure paid off. I really like the way you did the border, so perfect for the quilt. Any plans yet of how you are going to quilt it?

    Wowwwwww, absolutely stunning indeed! I have question if ya don't mind. The small black trim strips around each colored piece, is that sewn after the colored pieces are sewn together or is each colored piece of fabric sewn to the black strip individually? This quilt definitely shines like stained glass. Well done!

    The thin black strips are sew individually as you piece the block following the piping pattern.

    Love that stained glass quilt . Bought the pattern for the humbug bag but have never made one. Thought they were really cute - my problem is I am scared of zippers, never put one in.

    Your stained glass is beautiful. I am sure you can do those blocks in your sleep by now. Great job.

    That stained glass top, actually looks like light is shining through it.
