As I was looking for photos of my first crazy quilt the other day, I realized that I never actually did a post sharing the finished quilt with you.

I finished this quilt a year ago and sent it out to Cara of Cara Quilts to be quilted.  She did a fabulous job.  Each of the sections of the quilt has a different pattern, which is super fun for a crazy quilt.

She did a fabulous job, so I wanted to make sure that I took the opportunity to share it with you.

    I’m so glad you like it. I find it nerve wracking sometimes when I’m given less direction. It was fun to work on, def not boring!

      Thanks Cara! I do try to make things interesting. Trying to convince my husband that I need to send out another few quilts. We’ll see if I can get it approved. 🙂

    That looks like it makes a great cuddle quilt! Thanks for sharing the Archive post!

      Thanks so much Vivian! It would be a really nice sized quilt for our bed, if my husband and I were capable of sharing. Since we’re not, I often end up using king size quilts on our queen size bed.

    Oh how very fun this looks to make and even more to use!! PS I’m a cover hog too!!

      I’m glad that my husband and I aren’t the only ones. It just seems odd to me that no one thinks to just buy/make bigger blankets and quilts.

    Oh man, sashing. You are so much braver than me. I have set sashed blocks in the past, but urrrh….it’s a pain.

      It was a bit of a pain, but it was worth it. Plus, since I didn’t have cornerstones or anything like that in this quilt, it was fairly easy not to mess up.
