I do all the stitches by hand, but with the newer machines they have so many choices that you can really get a good variety that way if you want to simplify. I can't hold a candle to Sharon and alot of the others with their combination of stitches and how even they seem to get their stitches, but I do thank you for saying so. I would like to see what you come up with if you give it a try. So far I enjoy it. Good luck. I'm still a newbie myself, but if you have any questions I might be able to help out.

I don't use a pattern. I did paper piece the orange square that has a tulip shape on it, but other than that, they are all random. I use the method where you start out with a base fabric, add two odd shaped pieces, right sides together, sew, flip to cut and sew on another piece. Not the best discription, but I can't for the life of me remember what it is called. I guess the key to it is to start out with a piece that has 5 or more sides.

I don't think it was hard to learn, but when I go to quilt camp, no one there does crazy quilts and the ones who have tried it think it is harder to do than to measure. So I'm thinking maybe it is not controlled enough for some people? I'm not sure what it is. I talked my aunt into making a crazy quilt valentine. She didn't like it at all. She is a very accomplished quilter and has made many, but they are all measured and cut specifically. Maybe crazy quilters think with the opposite side of their brain?!  LOL

Actually, I am almost to the end of the squares I have finished as far as pictures go. I have been busy working on them, but as you know, quilting does take time. Thank you so much for your kind words of encouragement. Crazy quilting is a good way to use up some of your scraps, so if you have those, you should give it a try.

Debbie, I have to hand it to "regular" quilters... I have tried a few things, and I just get so frustrated having to measure and then my points never seem to match up. I find it so much easier, and a lot more relaxing, to just crazy quilt. There's nothing to match up since it is all so random. Strikes me as odd that I like it since I generally tend to prefer symmetrical things.

That's pretty amazing that you did all the figuring on the construction quilt and it was only your second quilt! Great job!

Hi Debbie. My nephew would love the quilt you have here for your main page. Every time a big machine goes by he has to stop what he's doing and watch.
