CRAZY QUILT HELP PLEASE!
Help! I’m making my first full size Crazy Quilt and would love any suggestions regarding this as I’m not using a pattern. The theme is my grandson’s high school days so has many embroideries and fabrics related to his many interests. There are so many colors and desgins so I really think the Crazy Quilt is the best bet.
1. Starting with 20″x20″ muslin blocks which I’m thinking of finishing at 12 or 15″
2. frame each square with plain black fabric and also possibly black border to cut down on busyness a bit
3. Should each square have it’s own theme or mix them? (computers, basketball, hunting, fishing, art, music, archery, computer games, Soduko, cards, money, cars, 4th of July/ Patriotic/Fireworks(his and my birthday time too), zebras, running, swimming, etc., etc. etc.
4. If I start with 4-6″ center piece and cut it with 5 edges, do I then cut narrow and wide strips and go around counter clockwise? Or should they be varying shapes too?
Please, any suggestions would be so helpful! It seemed like a great idea but now is a bit overwhelming trying to make decisions. I’ve just done small crazy quilt projects before. Mary
I’m an experienced seamstress, but have only made a few large quilts. Mary
