The other night my mom and I were talking crazy squares. She wanted to try making some, so I was giving her some tips.
We were discussing how most of my crazy squares end up between 3″ and 6″ in size, no larger. Some even as small as 1.5″.
So that started me wondering, how big could I make one? Why didn’t I make larger squares?
Out came the fabrics. I decided to use an old jelly roll that had been sitting on the shelf for a few years now.
I managed a 14″ block before I was annoyed with it and then added the polkadot border to bring it to 18″ square.
Challenge accepted, completed, and I don’t like it. I don’t know why. I just don’t.
So, I did what any other crazy person would do. I took the rotary cutter to it.
Now I like it! It’s weird and unusual.
Some batting and backing, some decorative stitching, and I determined it done.
Or was it? Time to add beads! I love the shimmer and shine that beads add.
