Description

This was a project to use up some of my scrap stash... especially all those home decor samples I had.  I love the finished top, but still not sure about quilting it.

**Update 10/07/2012**
I found someone to quilt this for me.  Thanks CaraQuilts.

**Update 10/11/2012**
This quilt is officially in the mail to +caraquilts.

**Update 11/20/2012**
I'm so excited! +caraquilts is done quilting this baby, and it's in the mail back to me.  She sent me a sneek peek, but told me each square has a different pattern in it.  I can't wait to see how it looks.

**Update 11/26/2012**
My shipment of quilts came in the mail today.  This one looks amazing.  Each of the blocks has a different quilting design on it. Now to bind the thing.

**Update 11/30/2012**
I took a couple hours when I got home tonight and got this quilt bound.  Yea!  Another quilt done.

Wow, a lot of work went into this one. All those tiny pieces. Very nice

There is something so fun about a crazy quilt ... I love that you used a bit of that gray sashing, too. I have no idea how I would quilt this one either...hmmmm

I have never seen a crazy quilt with such a fun array of fabrics! What a great idea to use up what you have. Quilting will be a challenge, but will only enhance this pretty quilt!

Thanks everyone! I'm really looking forward to getting this one quilted, but I'm going to let a professional handle it. My quilter thinks she can do it sometime early next year. I'll be sure to post photos when it's finished.

This is so exciting!!

Mouseinmypocket

True I know! I really can't wait to see this one... she had to go and tell me that all of the blocks have different designs.... so I really want to see it soon. She did an amazing job, so I hope my quilts are decent enough for her to use in her portfolio of work.

Carolmarie thanks! Caraquilts did an amazing job on the quilting... now to get around to binding it.

True

How fun...and Mouse looks quite happy as well!

Jennifleur

That does look totally fun! Great way to use up scraps too and I bet Cara had a great time quilting it. I know I would have. Anything goes!

Mouseinmypocket

True Jennifleur thanks ladies! I think Cara enjoyed quilting it. She told me she played iSpy with all the fabrics. There were lots of home decor samples.

Mymble

Wow- how fun- and it looks like Mouse has claimed it:)

Mouseinmypocket

Mymble thanks! Mouse claims all my quilts, but that's ok. It means that she'll hang out with me when I use them.

True

Yes!!! Great work...LOL about Mouse hanging out with you on quilts. I have one I use in my bedroom and have realized when I am reading before bed my Sebago, who never cuddles with me, comes and lies right next to me. He wants the quilt!! But I get the cuddles in the process:-) Another reason to love quilting.

True very true... tho it was a little annoying that she came downstairs and set on the quilt top while I was trying to bind it. It makes it a little harder to move around.
