The sampler Crazy quilt I made because I hadn't done one before and I thought it would be a good piece to do at quilting group. The colours I chose just because I liked them. I have actually made it into a cushion cover.
I bought the material because I just loved the colours and Sandra S had just finished a very simple quilt made up of 7 strips so I had the idea that I would do that. However, when I went to make it I decided that was a bit too simple for my tidy mind so I cut the fabric into lots of different and varying widths and sewed them into squares which I then cut down into exact squares and sewed them together again. I have been very pleased to learn that I can make a quilt without a pattern to follow which I wouldn't have dreamed of doing until I joined our quilting group and saw how many wonderful things are possible.
