Crazy Quilt Blocks

Last night, late last night, I went down into the Wife Cave to do a little more rearranging. I’m trying to make the Wife Cave more organized and user friendly. Some of this involved moving my shelving cabinets around.

A big accomplishment was getting my sewing table set up and my sewing machine back out of the box.

Since it was there, and since I was there…the fabric came out to play. Inspiration has come from the blog Living My Dream, which is done by a lady named Renee that I actually met through her husband who I used to play World of Warcraft with.

Last night’s block:

It’s far from finished. I still need to do all the embellishing.

Today I picked up some other fabrics from the piles I made last night and laid them out in a potential idea:

Then, using a little of what I read up on last night (of course I read the tips and tricks AFTER doing the first block), I proceeded to do this square this morning:

I don’t make up a drawing/pattern first. I just winged it. I had the finished idea in my head and I worked out the layout as I was making it.

Here are the two together:

What do you think so far, for my first attempts? Should I confess that I really haven’t done a whole lot of sewing? Maybe I shouldn’t…

Now to figure out the embellishments!

  1. Lovely! My confessions are that I am a sewing novice, myself. And I have a hard time embellishing printed fabrics. Your blocks are gorgeous and I cannot wait to see how you embellishments!

  2. LOL – That will teach me to edit what I am typing and talk to my husband at the same time. The last line SHOULD read, I cannot wait to see your embellishments.

    • Yes, definitely blame your hubby! I remember many times in WoW where he’d get someone typing something very…wrong…by talking to them and distracting them!

  3. The quilt blocks are lovely and they look technically great! I would never have guessed you were a novice – especially with your Mom! ;o)
