This project was my first crazy quilt.  The quilt contains four rows of six 12-inch blocks with 2" sashing between, and a center section measuring 44"x82", which finishes the quilt at 86"x104".  This first crazy quilt is much simpler than my later projects, as it incorporates very little hand work.





All the fabrics and orphan blocks in this quilt came directly from my scrap stash, which included lots of old clothes, and fabrics of different substrates.  It was interesting to see how they all worked together.

This quilt was sent to Cara of Cara Quilts to be machine quilted.





Leave a comment. I'd love to know what you think!

There are lots of fabrics in there. Impressive! Do you still have the quilt? It seems like the kind of quilt you could sit at for hours remembering what you originally did with each fabric. I love those kinds of projects!

jexxican I do still have the quilt. And yes, it's very easy to just set and look at sometimes.  There is flannel from my grampa's pjs, feedsack fabrics left over from dresses that my grama made for my mom, and all sorts of other great stuff.
