Crazy a.k.a My Mini Quilt

For the past 2 weeks,


it seems we have constantly been moving calves to shelter and bedding down.


Four days of blizzards in two weeks... enough already!!

With every one happy and healthy,

I thought I would start on my mini quilt for Quilting Gallery's Spring Swap.

I have made this mini wedding ring a couple of times before and framed them.

This time I thought I would make it 4 times as big which still keeps it under the 24" rule!!

I was thinking of binding in the strip and rings of blue and yellow.


This is a small project with lots of pieces....little ones at that!


I bet you thought this was the crazy part...


No.. not yet....

 there were some blue ring


Creeping up on CRAZY...

 this is HALF of the cornerstone!

Sew two of these 3/4" pieces to make a.......

THIS is the crazy part....

 ONE INCH Four Patch


This is where I realized I was humming the tune "Crazy".....



Seventy two of these little gems hand stitched on.


I put myself under the intermediate category for the trade
and
thought I was pushing my way into that group.

I would like to rethink that now!!

Where is the category for 'Crazy'?

Christa
