Crazy Square Quilt Sampler

Now I am on a quilting roll I thought I would use some fat quarters I bought 3 years ago in making a crazy square.

I started with an irregular pentagon and then worked outwards adding more fabric until the desired square size was accomplished, trimming each section off with a rotary cutter before adding another section of material.  I then added soft & natural batting and a lime green quilt bottom before sewing around the inside of each piece of fabric in blue thread.  The quilt was then trimmed to size and finished in the same lime green binding.

The finished sampler is 19 inches square and I used my Janome machine for all the sewing. I enjoyed the exercise immensely and now need to do more !!
