Crazy Quilting drives me crazy!!

I am very busy with my ATWQB II and have done 2 blocks so far as well as my own. While I am waiting for the next one to arrive, I thought I would have a go at the 'Crazy Quilt' block for Suzy. I don't have to do this one yet but as we are sending directly to her, and a few people have done theirs, I thought I'd give it a shot!! How hard can it be?
I rummaged around in my fabric stash (which is largely made up of quilting cottons) to find fabric of varying textures. I found some blue satin (top left) which I had leftover from a gorgeous pair of disco pants in the 80's..........yikes!! Also fished out some lace, ribbon and some silk samples a friend gave me a while ago. A navy silk scarf, which was on it's way to the 'Brotherhood' and some of my favourite butterfly fabric.
Several hours and grey hairs later - here it is so far.........
Now I have to embellish it with fancy stitches and beads, etc.
Will post the end result before I send it off.

Think I'll stick to cotton and geometrics in future. And I thought 'Nearly Insane' was insane......


  1. I remember those disco pants!! Looks great, very different from your other precise, beautifal works but it is also is interesting.

  2. Too funny...the crazy quilt block looks great though!
