I know you lovely gals and guys get these kind of questions all the time. But I've looked everywhere I can think to look Undecided

At a leadership conference someone had made a quilt that looked like a stained glass/crazy quilt.
Each of the little shapes were brightly colored and then outlined in black fabric strips and it had a black border. It looked like stained glass but with no specific design
I interested in finding out:
1)the name
2)if not that does anyone have ideas on laying out the pieces in sets that don't repeat each other, but allow me not to have to sew the whole thing in one piece vs block or even large consistent shapes

Thanks so much for your help and I look forward to a lot of fun on craftster.

The pattern is exactly what you think it is - a stained glass crazy quilt. A quick search turned up a couple crazy quilt books for sale that include stained glass technique. Seems to me like you could learn the general stained glass technique online for free and then make weird shaped blocks and piece them together.

Thanks so much I really did search a lot but I probably didn't type the keywords together correctly. Evey time I looked for stained glass I got really complicated flower quilts.

Did any of the squares look like this?

Amanda- Thank you for googling before you asked a question.  A few times now I have answered questions people had by simply typing a few words into Google.
(I check Craftster by hitting the "Recent with Pics" button and sighing and wisting. Wink )
Anaximander- What a beautiful design!  I love the color scheme.  Are there going to be any solid sections of it?  I think it would break it up a little nicer to have black sashing between the blocks, or maybe some solid color blocks in there somewhere.  However, that is just my personal opinion and not really a criticism Smiley

Sorry for falling off the face of the earth college started and I didn't have time to get my crafting fix. *sob*
Thanks for all you help, guys. It did look slightly like anaximander lovely quilt except their was black borders around every pane.
I snagged a lot of brightly color fat quarters and I think I going to attempt a simpler amish quilt first. But come summer I will be working on one of these for sure!

If it looked like that, then it's probably something similar called Cathedral Garden - check out my thread - linked above. It is definitely a good idea to start with something a little slower - get some experience with paper piecing.
