A special crazy quilt

Anne joined my class and informed me that her granddaughter was turning 21 in 6 months time and she wanted to make a crazy quilt for her 21st gift.
I asked Anne is she had done crazy before - she said NO.

Well, we jumped in with both feet - here is the lucky recipient of this beautiful quilt.............


Completed quilt with lace as sashing.................


Pretty charms.............


Great use of all sorts of threads............


Beads and braids............


Cute little basket of flowers.....................


Luscious silk ribbon embroidery..................


Pearl buttons...................


The very energetic Anne - and YES she made this quilt in 6 months ..........well, less than six months as holidays and overseas guests got in the way..............


And to complete it all - a beautiful label for a beautiful quilt for a beautiful granddaughter .

  5. Love Anne's quilt, can I join a class online? I have a friend who is willing to teach me, I just have been afraid to make it a priority...I am afraid to mess it up! I have been planing and purchasing and procrastinating and collecting and planning and collecting and procrastinating...you get the pattern...for 20 years...truly. I have SO much cream fabric and lace and threads and beads and trims and pearls and everything I see on your CQ quilts....I have done silk ribbon embroidery, regular embroidery, cross stitching and sewing for 35 years. Is it alright for me to have confidence in my abilities yet? LOL I am such a baby! and a perfectionist! I have purchased books on stitches, three of Judith Backer Montano's books and wired ribbon flowers books and ..and..and...more of the same as above. I know. I am Crazy...so CQ should be just right for me! Right???? Does your quilt have block patterns in it? I think I have used the excuse that I don't have any patterns to keep the procrastination going.
    hugs,
    Betsy

  6. Hi Betsy, I loved your comments!! you sound like so many of my students. I think you will find my book helpful - as I have deconstructed the whole process of Crazy quilting for you. And yes, there are patterns for 25 block/hexagons in the book. XX Jenny

    Thank you one and all!!
