    Thanks for the tutorial. This is a great one. I am a big fan of no measuring-no matching-no prior planning method of quilting. Count me in as a member of the Confusion Approach!

    I noticed that you ironed your seams open. I was taught that you are to sew them to the side that is darker of the two. Which one is better? Also, don't you have any problems with any of your batting coming through your seams?

    If you watch and catch any seams that are not tight you don't have any problem with batting. I iron mine open as when you are doing small stuff I don't like that raised feeling you get when you iron to one side. It shows up in minis and affects the way it looks. Makes it look bumpy. I don't get every seam to stay open but if you spray each seam they will stay open. I don't bother but I do reiron them open as I work from time to time. Sometimes they will not stay open and I just ignore what I can't get to lay flat. When the seams are flat then the whole top is more a cohesive whole. It all looks like one piece of cloth.

    You can iron to the dark if you choose it just isn't for me. I like the look of the finished project when I iron them open. It does take a bit more doing but it is worth it I think. When you do miniatures the things that would fade into the shadows in a big quilt stand out like a sore thumb in the mini version.

    I love this! I have many little pieces from many sewing projects over the years. This would be a great way to use some of those pieces up.
    Thanks for doing such a good job on this!

    Thanks, Rhonda...I printed your crazy quilting "rules" then DUH, it dawned on me that I only hand sew. When I cut thru pieces, I guess I must use then right then, else the seams will come apart. Any suggestions? Thnx agn.

    Sounds like you are doing it right! Just make sure you don't end up with a hole in the middle. Other wise just sew sew sew! I love this because it is forgiving. If you have a crooked seam it doesn't really matter unless it is a half circle! LOL

    I used to do everything by hand. I don't do it much anymore other than to close something with a blind stitch.

    Have fun!

    Rhonda, I remember watching my grandma sew quilts somewhat like your crazy quilting. She would sew these little left overs onto a piece of white material, making stips the length of her quilt then sewing the strips together. I always wished I could remember how it was done. Thanks to you I think this is it.... Sincerely, Cheryl
