This is the crazy quilt backing of the quilt pictured below.
I had so much fun playing and creating each block. I chose the light grayish blue border to calm down the effect a little and seperate the braided border.
I will definetely be doing this style again.
I was very leery of quilting this quilt. I have a history of creating large puckers!
My father was using the PFAFF, therefore the free motion foot was not available.
I gathered up my courage and my quilt, laid it all out nice and flat on the floor and began pinning.
I definetely have 42 year old knees! LOL.
I did not create any large puckers and actually only a few small ones. I just did a simple outline around the inner squares and the middle of each block. Nothing fancy or lavish, but it turned out great.
My family said it looked like a 3D effect.
Each time I make a quilt it brings such delight, I can hardly wait to start on a new one.
Plus, each time I quilt a quilt....the courage to quilt gets stronger and surer.
I also quilted another quilt that has been lying idle for quite sometime. I still need to add the binding. Will show it in another post.
