New Crazy quilt blocks, silks, taffetas...

I've added some strips of netting in the seams for the effect...

A closer veiw, the textures are so fun.

 I've started piecing the crazy quilt I will cut up to make new sewing kits. I have two blocks made that will be cut up rearranged and added to, making a piece about 20" x 28". I will cut that into three pieces about 18" x 8" ea. for three new pieces to make sewing kits with. I bought most of the fabric from Cathy's Crazy by Design shop . She has a good selection
of laces and fabrics.

This block will be cut up and rearranged for the crazy look.

Closer view...


  1. It's interesting to see how you make the block and then cut and re-arrange it. I've never tried that method and it looks intriguing.

  2. I have never used that method either. Looking at the Log Cabin block, I think I would use it as it is with lots of seam embellishments. Who said a cq block must have uneven pieces?

  3. It's all in the planning stage!! It will soon come together just right.

  4. you have some beautiful colours here Janie. I especially like the pinks....
