Wonder What Makes A Crazy Quilt?

Now I was wondering just what are the rules of Crazy Quilting?  Now my mentor Pat Winter says there are no rules.  So I thought OK, maybe this is a Crazy Quilt block I have just finished.  Now the CQ police might come down on me, but she would be kind about it maybe.    Now here I am just guessing that the CQ police is a lady, could be a guy with a hat and dark sunglasses that would walk up to your car (in the movies) and say may I see your license m'am?   

So with pretty material behind it and two kinds of prints on the top and pretty stitches and do dads that should make  a Crazy Quilt.  

It is a wall hanging of sorts so what in the world is Annette talking about you may ask. 



Well here it is:

 
This is the FIRST time I have tried something like this.  A sweet friend of mine said I love it, you have to start selling these.  Well of course she is getting one but it was fun to play and just see where this piece will go and develop it's self. 
 
The fabric underneath was fun to choose to go with this and the lace and overlay over the blue fabric came from my friend Mary Lou.   She blessed me with a lot of fabric so this was perfect for this project.
 
There you go and thanks for stopping by and seeing what is gong on in my little part of the world today.

    1. thanks Carol, I gave it to the lady I made it for today and she loved loved it. She got so excited that a customer would do something like that for her. Made our day to give it to her and she said she was having a bad morning and it made her day also. Gotta make some more I guess. xo
