Crazy plus Hearts and Stars quilts

Shell meander detail


Marilyn called this her Crazy quilt!

Crazy quilt



I love the randomness of the blocks in the close up view and the almost planned look in the full view.  What do you think?


We decided to use a hot pink thread and a shell meander for the quilting design.  I love pink thread on the black backing fabric.  It made my camera crazy, so I didn’t get a picture of that!  Do you like to contrast your quilting thread to the backing?  For me, I would say, yes and no!  It depends on the quilt!

Floral Medley quilting detail

Hearts and Stars



For Hearts and Stars, the thread is a neutral and blends with the fabric, front and back.  The thread needed to blend for this quilt to stay within it’s character.


Do you see the hearts and stars?  I had to look at this a minute to see it.  The E2E design for this one is Floral Medley, lots of different floral designs with random petals that look like hearts!

Thanks for looking!  Linda 🙂
