Crazy Button Quilt

If you've been following my blog for a few years, you may remember the button Crazy Quilt that I was working on before I got sick.  Each of the 25 6 inch blocks featured button clusters and some of my fancier buttons.  When I got sick, I couldn't do much of anything much less put a quilt together so the blocks have been sitting in my closet for over 2 years now.

I thought about them the other day and even mentioned the button quilt in my blog post yesterday.  The quilt kept popping into my mind and I finally realized why!

I'm teaching a Crazy Quilt class in May on how to work with my Elegant Crazy Quilt Seam Treatments.  It occurred to me that I should take that quilt with me since most of the seams are worked with the charted borders from my Ebook.

When I got back from town this morning, I pulled those blocks out and squared them up:

I probably won't get around to the assembly process until this coming weekend but it feels good to have taken the first step with it.  I have everything I need to finish it and it will indeed be a good example to take with me when I teach my class!

Once again, a beautiful piece. I can't imagine trying a quilt this big, but I will eventually. Thanks for continuing to inspire me.

Hi Pam

You have worked the colors in beautifully on the button blocks.
It looks really good put together.

I think this is the hardest part - arranging the blocks by color.

Where are you teaching in May and when in May?

Hi Pam! Oh, I am so thrilled that you are resurrecting this quilt! I loved those blocks and have so many of them in my inspiration file (along with my printed-out copy of your wonderful e-book). I can`t wait to see it finished!! Hugs to you and Mom... Cathy

Sometimes you need to listen when you're 'talking' to yourself! That's going to be a lovely quilt and a great resource for teaching.
