Not only was the quilt itself a very late housewarming present for my friends, but I'm also late in sharing it with you guys!

This was entirely sewn by hand in the traditional crazy quilt style, except the binding was sewn to the edge by machine, and then folded and hand sewn to the backing. Hand embroidery as well. Lap-sized, but more work than a Queen-sized machine-pieced quilt, for certain!

I got many of the fabrics through spoonflower, many of which no longer appear available (lucky I got them when I did!). The rest were pulled from my scrap, and range from quilter's cottons to flannel to taffeta. (No velvet, since one of my friends does not like the feel of velvets and velours, and a quilt needs to be snuggled.)

I think this is my most favorite quilt I've seen on here, so it has to go into my 'Holy Crap' pin folder. Love.

I have a split personality, because you guys crack me up.  AND The best day I ever had was TODAY!

It's beautiful! I think I'd hang it on a wall!

So beautiful!! I can't believe you hand sewed almost the entire thing, too!

Love it, love it, love it!  And the name of the quilt is just fantastic.
