Sampler #10: Crazy Quilting!

This is the one I’ve been waiting ages for, just hanging on for a fairly quiet month so I can properly devote time to it. Crazy quilting is something I’ve wanted to do forever!

Follow julie zaichuk-ryan’s board Crazy Quilting on Pinterest.

As you can see above, I’ve made a Pinterest Board for Crazy Quilting (how flipping cool is that little widget?! It refuses to center and sometimes you need to refresh to get it to load, but still! How come I never knew you could do that??) – if you’re interested, please go have a closer look because there’s some really amazing stuff on there. As always, I’m especially smitten with the historical examples – some of the ones I found via the International Quilt Study Center are really special! I’m seriously, like, krazee inspired right now. If only I didn’t have a million zillion projects that need my attention, I’d start right this second!

I’ll do this sampler like a proper tutorial / stitch-along – if you’d like to join me, I’d love to have you sew with me!

Next Monday, we’ll explore how to make the crazy patchwork – I don’t want to get into a project I can’t finish, so I’m planning on a single 12-15″ block for this sampler, to make a little modestly-sized mini-quilt. So gather up:

– a heap of fabric scraps
– a 12-15″ (or whatever size you like!) piece of plain paper as a foundation – or plain white fabric, if you prefer, either is fine
– a rotary cutter / mat / plastic quilting ruler (if you have them)
– basic sewing stuff

See you then!

    Hi
    I think we might have briefly met at FQ Retreat? Anyway, I’m in! I’ve never done any crazy quilting before but have had a go at ‘made fabric’ which, I think, is the same thing? Looking forward to having a stab at this! Well, see you on Monday…….
