Your photos - to have your crazy quilt work shown here, add the photo to your own photos, and give it a tag of " crazy " and we will add it to this slideshow.

THESE BLOCKS OR PATCHES ARE PUT TOGETHER IN A RANDOM METHOD AND WHEN THE PATCH IS LARGE ENOUGH IT IS squared off into a block. Many times but not always, It is made of silks, velvets, or other plush fabrics and often is highly embellished

I am a long time member of "Quilting With Us" (QWU). I used to give virtual workshops here. Like many others, I have ventured out as QWU became more quiet.

We are getting the warning that QWU is at risk of being disabled. I fear this is a sign that QWU will one day be no more.

It has become like family here and the thought of losing the friendships we have developed has giving me a sad heart. Like many dark clouds, there is a silver lining. When I ventured out, I created a quilters social network, much like QWU. I never mentioned it, for it was a conflict of interest. However, in this dark hour, it is time to let others know there is an alternative. It does not have to end here.

I would be honored for QWU members to join "Pattern Pastiche". If needed, we are more than happy to create a group for your new home.

Hi Miss Jamee, I try to be active but I get caught up in stuff.  Going to post pictures as I, maybe someday, finish my crazy patch blocks/quilts.

Welcome, Vanessa! You'll have to post a picture of your work. Wow - a king size crazy quilt sounds very ambitious!

I am working on a king size crazy quilt. I have three blocks finished. I need to sew some more so I can embroider them

It's beautiful, Lillie! I love the silk ribbon embroidery and the soft colors.

Jeanette, can't wait to see your king-sized quilt. Sounds very ambitious!

I'm currently working on a RR with an online group. Three of us are from the USA, 1 from Netherlands, and the other is from Australia. 

My first RR was with a different online group and that was tons of fun. I really learned a lot from the other ladies in the RR.

Here is a picture of my work on another block.

Hi and welcome, I hope we can inspire you and you can help inspire us.  I am hoping to post my latest crazy patch, king sized quilt I made for my neighbour and honorary niece  who was five when she received it.

Hi Lillie! Unfortunately, this group isn't too active. I am currently working on a small CQ inspired by the works of Brian Haggard. It has 4 blocks, each with an old family photo in the center. What are you working on?

Comment by Lillie Doerr on August 7, 2013 at 11:45am

Hello-I'm new to this group, but not new to CQ. I am excited to hear what everyone is doing.

Erin, sounds like you're on the right track with getting your book, embellishments, and fabrics. I've bought grab bags before and also used old bridesmaid dresses, etc. I've also obtained some nice fabric sample books (velvets, linens, etc.) for free from a local decorator store. Crazy quilting is a great way to use all those fancy machine stitches. Personally, I like to embroider by hand. It's a nice way to sit down in the evenings and relax. Here's a website you might enjoy http://pintangle.com/ . The author shows how to do a variety of embroidery stitches. If you click on her CQ details FAQ page, she gives you free 6" block patterns for her features crazy quilt, along with close-ups of her work.
