My quilting thoughts and inspirations sprinkled with a glimpse of life down on the farm

Thursday, August 24, 2023


Crazy that this is my first post for August!! I honestly did not think that was the case.
Crazy is also the name of the bloghop I signed up for a few months ago...

Hosted by Joan of Moosestashquilting it seemed an apt name for a bloghop that I really shouldn't be signing up for.
Crazy is how it's been on the farm lately.
And I knew it would be like that when I signed up. But a Crazy Bloghop sounded fun.

Crazy is how I felt after I offered to sew a quilt for work, after this sweet range of fabrics came in. I knew I shouldn't have!
Crazy Cocoa Pinks by Laundry Basket Quilts. Edyta always knows how to tug at my heartstrings.
And crazy is how I felt when the said fabric sat and waited for attention.  Crazy as in 'Oh Golly When Will I Get To This'.
So with time running out, I went into overdrive. First of all a test block - 
I've been able to grab snippets of time here and there, in between feeding calves and tending to cows - a couple of days that were otherwise booked became free, housework got left....and so on.
Serious sewing- 
First set of blocks sewn- 
Then more sewing and trimming-
Final blocks ready to assemble-
And finally, after a few more crazy hours,  a completed top- 
Lap quilt made from Cross and Crown blocks.
(The photos aren't in the best light, I'm afraid. I'll try to update them at some stage.)

To see who else succumbed to a bit of craziness, today's participants are —

And the full bloghop list is on Joan's blog.

I did wonder if I would get it quilted before the bloghop but that was just a crazy thought...

'til next time,
happy stitches,
