quilt top crazy


You may have noticed this month I have been making quilt tops like crazy. I can't help it. It goes well with my no fabric buying month.

Here is the latest completed top. Inspired by this flickr group.
This has been a work in progress since June or earlier.
Wouldn't this be a cute pattern to use for a keepsake quilt made from a child's clothing?

Dedee said...

That's an awesome quilt. I too love the colors. Man, where is my sewing machine!

Beth said...

It's very pretty! I love the colors you've used. I think scrappy quilts are my favorite.

Jen said...

I'm amazed and jealous that you have so many scraps that you can coordinate a scrap quilt! It's really pretty.

Sarah said...

How weird... I just discovered that flickr group last night and started my own scrappy log cabin blocks!

I love it - it's, as usual, gorgeous!

Leanne said...

Wow! That really is beautiful. Can we have some more close up photos?

Frogdancer said...

I'm glad you posted that Flikr group. I've had a lovely time browsing.

I FINALLY started the quilt a long yesterday. I did the first two blocks. They look fantastic, and I'm so excited. Thank you for your ultra-clear instructions. I just set the laptop up next to the sewing machine and went for it. This is only my 3rd quilt top, so I'm on a steep learning curve. But so far so good!

Linda said...

Gorgeous as usual, I agree can we have some close up's please. We can't enlarge the current photo.

Shelli said...

that is a FABOO quilt.

You have a keen eye, and I appreciate it.

We're in the process of working on adoption #2, but once we are done using up kids clothes? You can bet your bottom dollar, I'll be employing this strategy!

You are a GENIUS!!!!That's what I'm going to do for my mom's 60th. I wanted to talk to you about using some clothes from my kids and this is the perfect quilt to do it. I might get my sister and sister-in-law to send some of thier kids clothes and it will be a grandkids quilt. She will LOVE IT!!!! You're the BEST

Absolutely beautiful! I love your version. I have made about 10 of their version blocks and made them into lavender pincushion/sachets.
It looks like yours are bigger? What size is each section (piece)? Thank you for such an inspiring blog :)
