My idea of...

... a CRAZY quilt!
 Now, I realize some people might be holding their nose or running for the toilet, but I like it!  And I want to thank Pokey and Michele for their suggestions - I truly appreciate them!  I used the red and white fabric that Michele liked, and I fully intended to make some log cabins because they go with the house theme, but once I started ad libbing, it soon became a lap-size and I decided that's the size I want it to be.  It's a mix of modern,  the red and white is 30s repro, the flower pots are feed sacks. 
 The blue and white above the birds is African.  I do want to put a border of some sort on it, and I still need to figure out the backing, but I'm having fun.
The narrow red trim has a navy blue line running through it and is actually a selvage that says "Guaranteed Wax" with a number.  
So that's what I've come up with, for better or worse.  I hope you're having a great weekend!


  1. I love it! How fun and bright......Its wonderful! I'm so glad you liked my suggestion :) The different fabrics add so much! I especially like the black and white fabric. I have a Gwen Marston book about 'liberated quilting' that this makes me think of. Are you familiar with her work? I've always wanted to make a quilt like this :)

  2. I just became a follower of your blog!


I love to hear from you!
