There's a quilt show going on over at Pigtales and Quilts. I'm not a competitor but I do enjoy crazy quilting. Back in 1992 someone gave me a several boxes of old blue jeans because they knew I did a lot of sewing (mostly clothes for the kids, curtains and whatnot). I made several twin bed sized quilts out of the bluejeans that are now in my camper and then I made a crazy quilt with some of them. It's a tied quilt, only the seams are embellished, it's backed with flannel and it's been used over and over again on camping trips and still hasn't worn out.
I joined a few Yahoo groups for sane quilters and was looking for more excitement when I came across some crazy quilting Yahoo groups too so took the plunge and joined in the fun. I like to join in on RRs because I know I will try some new things on other people's blocks I would be too lazy to try on my own.
In the process I've found I like to do colorful and encrusted embellishing and especially love flowers since I get inspired by my own flower garden. Otherwise I'm a pretty drab kind of person.
What follows is a parade of some of my more colorful moments in stitching. If you want to see more of both my sane and crazy quilting just look around my blog.
Thanks for visiting.
