Crazy quilt

This is a 4 block crazy quilt I have been working on for quite some time. I take it out every once in a while and add something to it then put it away and wait for the next creative urge to hit and then I get it out and add some more. I think it is about 10 years old you would think I would have finished in in that length of time. But it is a work in progress and I really have no plans for it so I just work on it when the mood strikes. I think I haven't made it crazy enough. Most that I have seen are covered in stuff.

This one of the blocks I did the pansies on my embroider attachment on my sewing machine. Another thing I haven't touched in a long while.

This one is one of my favorites, I like the dragonfly, it is appliqued on, and the yellow rose is ribbon embroidery. The Block bases are of velvets , satins and such, I even use blanket binding.
This is a look at the center where they all meet, I like the little river of buttons, that spill from one block to the other. I have 4 more block in progress to add to my quilt, if I ever get it all together I will show the finished project... or maybe just show the other blocks that are in progress.

I am sorry I have been so long between posts but I have been busy and not quite up to parr.

I love the look of crazy quilts, but it looks like too much work for me.

Great job! I can't wait to see it finished even if it takes a few more years. Sounds like some of my projects.

Hi Wanda....thanks for stopping by! That crazy quilt is magnificent so far!...You know, it is a lot of work to do things the old way, but it gives me such satisfaction to buy less and stand on my own two feet. I hope I can continue to do it for as long as possible. If only I had had these opportunities when I was younger! But, I guess it is never too late...at least that is what I keep telling myself. Have a great day!
