I have an enormous amount of scraps and am constantly trying to find projects to use them up....this project did just that!
I piece together a bunch of scraps using a crazy patchwork technique and made it into a fun, colorful pillow. 


Then I took advantage of all the decorative stitches my machine has to offer and went crazy with that too!


This was a super fun project!  If you want to give it a try, I created a tutorial you can find here: http://sewplicity.blogspot.com/2011/11/tutorial-crazy-patchwork-crazy-quilting.html#more

Thanks for looking!

That looks awesome! I have begged for a sewing machine for Christmas and I will definitely give this a go. Thanks!
