1st crazy patch quilt

Project Description

What are you most proud of? I am most proud of the fact that I am 64 years and have not stopped the brain from learning about quilting. I have been for my first beginners basic quilting lesson, and just love it. I should have started 30 years ago. What advice would you give someone starting this project? Just let your ideas flow and put it all down in your quilt. Use any thing of value, eg, your moms old handkerchief, little lace doyles, buttons from your childrens favourite clothing, bits of ribbon, just about anything goes......and most of all, enjoy.

What you will need

  • Used 100% cotton fabrics
  • beads
  • lace
  • embroidery threads for embelishments and flannel for backing.

Q&A with HipGran

Lisajov asked:
Wonderful! I never would have known it was your first crazy quilt. I love the use of lace.
HipGran answered:
For this being your first quilt I think you have a hidden talent that you have now unleashed. You go girl and thanks for sharing, it gives me motivation I need to get back into the swing of things.
HipGran answered:
Thanks for the very inspiring words. I have just completed my 2nd traditional quilt, (very simple design) but I am so proud of them............My brain just does not want to go and sleep, I could sew 24/7 . Just love it.
