I want to start another crazy quilt but I’m debating the color scheme. I only have cotton fabric so it won’t be a *true* crazy quilt with it’s mix of fabrics but I’m really tempted to make it in only blue and white. I’ve never seen a two color crazy quilt but I liked the look of my postcard and love blue and white quilts so I’m thinking why not. It’s not going to be huge – look how long the doll quilt took me and that’s without any beading which I definitely want to do on this one. Any thoughts?
I bought this book after seeing it on VickiW’s blog and I love it – it has lots of motifs for me to use for embroidery. I decided I’d start embroidering some on fabric patches while I decide my color scheme. On Allie’s blog I learned I could use paper to trace the design and stitch through – how cool is that?
I’ve finished the binding on this donation quilt tonight. It reinforced my belief that having a large stash isn’t necessarily a bad thing. I love that I can pull backings and bindings for a variety of donated tops and finish up these quilts with the fabric I have on hand. I love how this stripe looks.
I had several great suggestions about a name for my current piecing project, my favorite was from GypsyQuilter “Pieces of my Heart”. Of course, I’ll probably shorten it to “the heart quilt” and 6 months from now I won’t remember what I actually called it but for now it pleases me.
