My first Crazy Shortcut Quilt is done!

2.16.2009

The first two pictures are of my first attempt at a Crazy Shortcut Quilt before I took it all apart and started over:

Notice the horizontal and vertical sashing don't meet and there is some bunching.

Here is it today! Even though it was a pain to take it apart and start over, I am very glad I did. It looks so much better! I would call my first try at making a Crazy Shortcut Quilt a success. And, the best part is I made a new friend along the way. :-D

  4. Oooh, neat! I've seen crazy quilts before, but never with the sashing. That really adds another dimension and it looks complex. Good for you for doing such a good job - and for sharing it with us!

But arthritis has stopped my stitching and I am so sad. I mmight drug myself silly some day and try to get enough finished sop I can put it together and have it quilted. Thank you for sharing. I also enjoyed the items on your shelf. And I think I saw a cousin to now of the spiders in my house. quite a resemblance.
