Krazy Quilt



A very belated Happy New Year to you all, hoping things are going well so far.  I was away abroad over Christmas and the New Year so didn't get chance to make any posts on the blog.  Very busy also in a great new job which has taken more of my time.  Settling in now so have a bit more time to do craft and to post.

This machine sewn quilt was actually finished before Christmas and uses 15  Krazy Quilt Blocks made using a variety of striped cotton fabrics in black, navy blue, red, green, turquoise and pink all with a contrasting white stripe..  The blocks had been sitting around waiting to be used for ages actually.




Anyway, I decided to buy some black plain cotton material to make the sashing which I think sets off the rather mesmeric blocks.




I used a warm and natural batting and the quilt back was made from a bold black and white check cotton print which was also used for the binding which I did by hand.




I square quilted half way through the sashing and blocks with black 40's cotton thread.

I can't help thinking of Alice in Wonderland when I see this small quilt.

  3. This is great. I used to quilt all the time until the rotator cuff went out. I love the black sashing and the backing. It's always such a pleasure to finish one isn't it? Then you can sit back and admire it. My favorite thing to do when I finished one was have my husband lay down so he could be the first to lay under it. Enjoy your quilt.

  6. Looks almost as if there should be an optical illusion going on there! The dramatic black was a great choice with the striped crazy blocks.

  8. That must have taken ages to make all the finished squares Sid. I love how you've used black to frame each one makes them stand out more.

  10. This is brilliant. I kind of know what you mean about Alice. I can imagine her falling through the quilt.
