Crazy Quilt Tutorial

By Andrea | June 25, 2012 |

If you’re like me, you keep the scraps from all of your finished projects, hoping that you will find a use for them later.  Actually — I take that back — if you’re like me, you’ll collect everyone’s scraps in hopes of using them later.  I have a lot of scraps at my house –…

Lukas’s Quilt

By Andrea | June 22, 2012 |

You remember that quilt that I started at the beginning of the week?  I got it done!  I have decided that I absolutely love making small quilts.  Why?  Because they’re quick.  I love that I feel like I accomplished the same amount of work as a big quilt, even if it is smaller. The Road…

More Quilting

By Andrea | June 18, 2012 |

I may have just finished a quilt top, but that doesn’t mean I’m planning on taking a break from my quilting.  I’ve already got another (allbeit much smaller) project in the works.  This one will actually be small enough that I’m hoping to attempt to machine quilt it myself, using my sewing machine.  This particular…

Crazy About This Top

By Andrea | June 14, 2012 |

I’m crazy about this top, quilt top that is. I’ve got what I estimate to be between 60 and 70 hours and about $20 in this quilt top.  Since I used scraps for all the blocks, the only fabric I had to purchase was for the sashing. I’m trying to decide how to explain how…

Crazy Progress

By Andrea | June 13, 2012 |

I’m super excited that I finished the center section of the crazy quilt! I’ve still got to cut the scraps off of the edges, but the hardest part is done. Once this piece is cut down it should measure 82×44-inches.  And please excuse the bad photo, it’s way to big to get a decent photo…

It’s Getting Crazy

By Andrea | May 28, 2012 |

As you may have read in some of my previous posts (here, here, here, here, and here), I’m working on a crazy quilt.  I got a lot done on it over the weekend.  My original plan for the quilt involved sashing the 12-inch blocks in a dark grey – something like Kona Cotton in Charcoal. …

Super Secret Revealed

By Andrea | May 21, 2012 |

The super secret project is finally finished!  For those of you who didn’t know what it was, I made my sister Kayla a quilt as a wedding present and gave it to her as her Bridal Shower yesterday. While I was making this quilt, I noticed a few things that are the same about quilting…

That’s Crazy!

By Andrea | May 1, 2012 |

I’m super excited about about my crazy quilt project.  I’ve completed a total of 19 blocks so far.  That mean’s I’m 75% through the crazy quilt blocks. Here are some photos of the completed blocks:                            

Still Going Crazy

By Andrea | April 17, 2012 |

With all the fun, exciting things going on in my life, I’ve been quite a slacker on all of my crafting and sewing projects, including my quilts.  Fortunately, when I went home last night, I started cleaning the basement, which is where my crafting area is.  I didn’t get too much cleaning done, but it…

Cotton and Metal

By Andrea | March 20, 2012 |

Over the last few weeks, the weather has been pretty nice most of the time, so I’ve not spent a lot of time inside the house crafting. If it was a sunny 82 degrees at your house, you wouldn’t either. But don’t worry, I have been working on a couple of projects. I’ve done a…
