To make turning the edges under easier you can baste the pieces to an old fabric softner sheet and then cut a slit down the center of the sheet and turn the piece right side out. then Viola! all you edges are neatly turned under (this is also great for aplique)

that is beautiful. You have inspired me to make a crazy quilt purse. A really soft one so I can have a pillow for nap time at school. hehe.

The pillow is pretty!
Looks a bit intimidating though.

Wanted to add that I have tried doing patchwork stuff before, and I wasn't able to succeed with my project.

Thank you for the awesome instructions!  I started a crazy quilt when I was a kid, but had to give it up because I was sewing (messy stitches) from the back and random peices would puff up or refuse to fit together.

Only two years after I finished making it, I finally hung this wall-hanging up yesterday! I got a little iron curtain-rod, and those clip-rings, and hung the quilt above our bed. The pillows on the bed (the green hand-embroidered plaid and the brown button one) were made of gorgeous raw silk by my sister, and I think they compliment the quilt nicely!

(The reason for the delay hanging the quilt: until last weekend, our room was a mish-mash, with burgundy walls and a pink-and-blue duvet. Now that we're selling the house, we had more motivation to redecorate!)
