Crazy Scrap Quilt


Last night I wanted to do some sewing so I pulled out one of my many UFO's and got to it.  I thought the blocks for this quilt were maybe from 2013.  You can imagine my surprise (shock) when after a bit of research I found they were really made in early 2011.  Can that be?  Yes.  I was reading Aneela Hoey's blog one day back in April of 2011 and saw her making this .  I enjoyed making the blocks because it's really a free and easy block, just put your fabrics together as you please.  I did organize my blocks into colors and use the cupcake as the common denominator.  When I saw the striped fabric I had begun to use as the sashing, it almost came out, but last night I went with it and in the light of day I think it worked well.

 That wide strip of navy may have been used differently, but it's fine.
I even like my brown/tan/yellow blocks.

So I'm four years late finishing the top, but it's progress and that's a good thing.

Our next round of funky weather is due to begin in a few hours.  I'll be keeping myself busy making the border for the Knitter's Gifts quilt, which is made up of mini drunkard's path blocks. 

God Bless You.

Nice crazy quilt. Progress on anything is good anytime. I`m way behind on my Knitter`s Gifts but it will get done one day.

The ramdon blocks are great to make, especially from scraps. I was once in a quilt group and made some mile-a-minute quilts for charity, which were done a similar basis. It's good to see something finished isn't it? Take care.
