WIPW - Finished

 Work In Progress Wednesday is happy to report on a finish!

Crazy for Crazy 

is now completed and hanging on the wall.

I have covered the back with kimono silk 

which I fastened with the binding, at the same time as I added a hanging sleeve.

I launched the Crazy for Crazy project at the end of January 2018, so this has taken almost 3 1/2 years. Here is the first blog post.

I got my inspiration from Sharon Boggon's excellent book:

and have been much helped by Elizabeth Healey's two books, for the various ornaments added to each block.

You never make a quilt on your own, other people contribute in many ways - someone has woven and dyed the fabric, made the beads, braided the cords, twisted the thread... Others have made the quilt possible by donating fabric or notions, or given help and advice.

I am every so grateful to all who have made this quilt possible. 

In the coming weeks I will feature each block and talk a little about its background. It will be a Thursday posting called What's In A Quilt.

Log Cabin Challenge

I made another set of 12 blocks. (Last week's block is on the left).

I long to start some new projects, but want to tie up some loose ends first. UFOs are not only stitch and quilt related!


  1. What a gorgeous finish! Well done!

  2. Congratulations on finishing your magnificent crazy quilt. It is stunning and yes, others have contributed in many ways from the fabric , cotton, braids to the encouragement. Well done.

  3. Congratulations on the finish of the fabulous C4C, from me also. It will be admired always, for the work and artistry for years to come.
    The depth of colour on the quilt looks wonderful...another step to the completion of this one. Little by little will get them completed. Then we'll watch for a new project.

  4. The little crazy wall hanging is quite stunning! I'd love to see it 'in real life'. The golden background complements it beautifully too.

  5. So beautiful! Crazy quilts always are so personal and individual and just YOU! Great job!

  6. *cheers* *waves pompoms* Well done indeed!

  7. 3 1/2 years! Has it been that long?
    Yes, congratulations and the kimono silk is perfect for the backing.
    I'll enjoy reading more of the story, thanks for sharing.

  8. Love the octagon quilt - it looks great
