I did buy a couple of download .pdf files today and then I was looking and found the above really neat crazy quilt. This is something I could really appreciate.

Now that I've got my big projects pretty much underway - I may consider this one. I know I have enough fabric.... (massive understatement).

Angie,
Crazy quilts are fun and easy! All you need to do is start with a 5-sided pieced of fabric for the center. Generally foundation pieced, you just add another piece/strip then cut it to size. On your first pattern it looks like they add a strip of black before adding the next color...that achieves the stained glass look.

Have fun experimenting!

Understatement, is an understatement. You have enough fabric to do 500 of those quilts and still not make a dent. LOL:eek: Thanks for the links. Beautiful.

That is pretty crazy quilt and different. I just do crazy quilts and I do it by blocks. One I need to get finished up is started with a black center and then all kinds. Heavier fabrics. As I work mostly with scraps. Got it over half made. I am just learning to put in slashings and corner blocks.

Cups of energy.

Also, my family is grown, and the house is a mess, but no one comes to visit so I live in a huge sewing workshop with furniture thru it, of a sort.

And I'm a night owl - so I get my second wind about 9 or 10 pm, then it's midnight!

I'm happy you found some designs to order. I down loaded the 4 I bought and put them on a disk so I could take some paper and use the quicker printer at work once in awhile.

I have the 4 printed out, two of them, I printed out enough for 10 blocks plus some errors - just in case one of them ends up being in the Fall/Christmas quilt block swap.

But, I'm eyeing that first quilt and thinking of purchasing that after payday.

well, that explains it! I still have to school 4 kids, then feed and clean after the said kids and one DH.
I drink a pot of energy every day... and it isn't enough! lol!

I love that first one, it is gorgeous. And actually the second one you listed is one of the patterns I got! I think it looks really neat.

All my stuff will have to sit for a couple of days, But come Friday I am sewing and everyone better LEAVE ME ALONE!!!
(ha! like that will happen. DH will probably want to butcher some meat by then)
