I have been making crazy quilts for quite a few years and have made lots of kinds of projects, including two queen size quilts, one for each of my two sisters, who have very divergent tastes.

Joan loves dark jewel colors and rich fabrics, so hers is velvet and satin.

Pat wanted a quilt made using the fabric from her wedding dress, in colors to go with her bedroom.

But today I was enjoying another favorite craft, cardmaking, and I made a get well card with a tiny crazy quilt in it.

I love that one kind of crafting can add to the creativity of the other.

I love the first one. I have the same taste as your sister...love velvets and satins and rich colours.

is the second one using the same fabric as the wedding dress, or did you cut up the actual wedding dress?? If I ever get married I don't think I could bear to part with my wedding dress  Tongue

Thank you!
Both quilts were done extemporaneously with no pattern. In fact, I am unaware of crazy quilt patterns, as the instructions I had seen all seemed to be done without them.
And, yes, my sister actually had me cut up her dress and use it in the quilt, as she has only one child, a son, and was sure no one would ever use it for its original purpose again.
