Drum Roll............... - the Crazy quilt is Finished + 2 others

After a smidge under 2 years I have completely finished my Crazy Quilt BOM. Now it is on to writing up the remaining 8 block lessons to send out. I decided against putting a border on as I did nto want to take away from the cololur wash effect. It has a lovely burgundy jacquard backing and black satin binding. The quilt weighs over 7 lbs and does not have any batting in it. It is just a showpiece. It is one of those things that if you had to evacuate the house in a hurry it has most of your treasures stitched on it. Think I will tell my family that when I die instead of putting flowers on my coffin they should drape this quilt with all its sparkle over me.

The final lesson Block 12 and construction pdf have gone out in the embellished cats BOM so that one is now concluded.

I have also put the binding around my Hoopsisters Mystery for 2014 , the Modern Baltimore in my favourite red/black and white colour colourway.

I have restitched some of my blocks in the Polka Dot BOM and will hopefully have Block 2 lesson out to everyone doing that popular BOM tomorrow or early weekend.


  1. Vicki you quilt is lovely. Congratulations on a job well done. Just stunning.

  2. Vicki: You're amazing! The quilts are absolutely beautiful! Thanks for sharing your talents with us.

  3. Absolutely love your colour wash crazy.......so much work, and yes I agree about draping it over your coffin because it is you! A friend had her quilts on display with a beautiful Log Cabin over her coffin, then friends did a guard of honour holding up both her quilts & those made from her patterns.......very moving! Enjoy your quilt first :) xxxx
